I have been running a IBM 6x86 120+ overclocked to a 150+ now for about
3 weeks. The motherboard I am using is based on the Triton II chipset.
These chips draw a lot of JUICE!! Make sure your board can put out the
necessary power for these boards and that you are using a good ball
bearing fan. I have heard of these chips just shutting down and
rebooting from overheating or from boards that cannot pump out the
wattage. With this board CPU setup I have had no problemes.
The performance to money ratio is just uncomparable to what intel is
offering. This CPU up here in Canada cost me about the same as a P75 yet
I am getting P 150 performance out of it.
I have used the following operating systems with NO DIFFICULTIES
-Win NT Workstation 3.51
