I own a AMD K6 2 3D 350Mhz(3.5 * 100), 128MB ram. Can I overclock my processor to higher Freq. ie: 450Mhz(4.5 * 100)
What is the advantage and the disadvantage or the risk doing this. What is the effect to my processor or other part if my PC can't support this freq. Thanks.

Yes.
Disadvantage is wasted time when it does not work reliably.

I tried to do the same, with the CPU you have, It wont let you do it. you could try 400 or 380 but it wont go that high AMD are already CPU overclock from the company. so the answer would be you cant and if you can, since I tried that and did not work here. it will work very unstable so it is not a good Idea, you could damage the CPU and fry it. so I would not reccomend to go that high

You can't overclock too much for K6-3D although it use .25 process. But overclock to 400mhz is possible. If you feel it is not too stable at that case, try to increase the voltage to 0.1 or 0.2 V higher. But beaware of the cooling factor.
