Treurig nieuws bij HardOCP: hun trouwe PIII wil niet langer op 558Mhz lopen. Oorzaak: waarschijnlijk beschadigde L2 cache chips:
Out of the box from Dallas Memory, the processor ran at 558MHz at default voltage with no problem. Since my jacking around with it, I cannot get it past 4.5x117, and believe me
I have tried just about everything me and a few others can think of. I really do think we torched the L2 because if we bring the L2 latency up to 10 or 11, the processor still functions at 558MHz. Not extremely stable but at least it will again boot Windows... Lesson to be learned here? Don't fix it if it aint broke. Just smoked my own MHz greedy ass in the name of living on the edge. Guess that goes to show that if you live on the edge, you are bound to fall off sooner or later. Welp, glad it was not a PIII-550.....
