Ace's Hardware onderzoekt in dit artikel de overklokbaarheid van de AMD K6-III processor. Vanwege de 256K full speed cache kunnen overklokkers helaas niet al te veel uitvoeren met dit CPU'tje. Het artikel geeft een aantal bruikbare tips:
Ok now that we have gone over realistic overclocking speeds for the K6-III, let's begin. First of all, we need to make sure that no other hardware devices are going to crash your system. It may boot up 50MHz higher then crash, and it might not even have been the processor's fault. Make sure that your PCI and AGP busses are running at their proper speeds (or lower): 33MHz/66MHz.
Note to VX and TX/TX-Clone chipset users: most VX/TX-based motherboards that have a 75 or 83MHz bus option also have an A-sync setting that will allow the PCI bus to run at 33MHz. I highly recommend that you use it. Also, bear in mind that the voltage regulators on older chipsets were not made to handle the amount of wattage required to run a 55W chip. Additional cooling for the voltage regulators is highly recommended on these types of boards.
Memory should be set for a higher latency (e.g. 3-3-3 or higher) to alleviate the possibility of your ram failing. Disabling UDMA is also a recommendation. These options may be turned back on after successfully overclocking (depending on stability).
