Overclocker's Workbench heeft een paar SL36A C300A's van de straat gepikt om te checken in hoeverre deze exemplaren overklokbaar zijn. Eerdere berichten spraken over de wonderbaarlijke wederopstanding van de C300A (de SL36A zou 598Mhz doen). De bevindingen van Overclocker's Workbench:
I put in a GlobalWin heatsink/fan with the CPU, it has no problems at all with FSB of 100,105,107,110,112,114,117 at all. Windows 98 ran fine till 117Mhz. I was able to run Winbench 99 at 114Mhz. 117 Mhz no GO.! Anything that is above 117 will not POST. The processor runs fine at 2.0v at 35 Deg Celsius as reported by Motherboard Monitor ver 3.81. I noticed something that is weird. When I select anything above 100Mhz, the AC97 audio on my i810 based board couldn't work at all. Everything else is fine. I have email the FAE dept. of the mainboard manufacturer. I shall keep you guys informed once I get an answer.
