over clocking my K7

#1
Win XP SP1
AMD-K7, 548MHz, 352MB RAM, MAXTOR 92040U6 (with 19462MB Capacity), S3 Graphics - Savage4 display adapter. What can i overclock this to, and test its stability?

[ps: if you've read my other post about buying a new comp, i just want to have some fun, and test out my o/c skills:blink: ]

im a rookie so be kind...:confused:

a K7 at 550mhz? i've never heard of such a thing. if it's a K7, then it might be underclocked as is, as the slowest K7 starts at 650mhz. or it could be a 550mhz K6, but i've never heard of one of those, either.

anyone know what a 550mhz AMD chip would be?

They do exist, I had a K7 500MHz a while ago, it got passed down to my dad's computer when I upgraded though.

ok peep this:

AMD 756(tm)
AMD 756AC

in a little white box it says
S30 Main Board
99110-1
48.32GO1.011


i touched the AMD 756 chip thing and it wasnt hot, i dont know what that means, but i figured if it was hot already, i shouldnt o/c.

thanks, i look forward to your responces

either way, i suggest you open up the case. at least it clean it out since you're going to be overclocking. get the dust out of the heatsinks, make sure all fans are running, and maybe tidy up the cables a bit.

ok i got it figured out, using CPUFSB 2.2.10 and i didnt have any errors, but it didnt change the frequency.. any solution?

(so can i call myself an official over clocker now?);)

You'll need to find out what PLL your motherboard has. To quote myself in the previously linked thread

To find out what type of PLL chip is in your dell, go here
In your case IBM, but you get the point :)

i had the other URL open, but i was reading it the same time i was posting and i didnt get to that. I did look, i did figure it out, but it doesnt say the Frequency is changing.. is it hopeless?

Yes, it's hopeless ;)

Maybe if you want to overclock it, just get a cheapo second hand board with some o/c options :)
