I don't have that particular MB, but I was running the AMD K6/2-300 at
112X3.5... I never noticed any problems with the OS, but the hardware
had a huge hang up. My modem hasn't worked since. I do have two large
fans in the case, but the temp was still sky high. I have an electronic
temp gauge with the sensor just above the cpu, it was reading 93 degrees
celsius. Now that I have it back down to the recomended settings the
temp is at 58 degrees.
If you do want to push the chip then I recomend a few things.
1. Get some good fans, not the slow 12v kind... get the high flow kind
usually 115v or 220v. I have one blowing into the case and the other
blowing out the other side (don't forget that heat rises).
2. Find out what the MB specifications are, particularly the voltage
regulators. You need to know just how good they regulate the voltage.
It seems odd but the higher the tempiture the more voltage you need, if
the CPU wants 3.3v at 50 degrees then it needs 3.45 at 70 degrees...
Just be sure not to go above the max the CPU recomends (I haven't looked
at the specs in a while but I think its about 4v).
3. Get yourself a temp guage with an external sensor (I bought the
el-cheapo from Radio-Shack)
4. I know it isn't easy, but try to get the specs on your peripheral
cards as well. Try not to exceed there limitation (too much :)
Again, the only trouble I had was with my modem. Unfortunatly the only
thing I had spare was a 28.8 winmodem which leaves me using Windoze for
my email until I can get a new one :-(
