Upgrading k6-2 300 system
Posted on 2000-02-24
About 18 months ago I purchased a generic system with a K6-2 300 processor on a PC100 M577 Motherboard. I do not have much knowledge about tuning my system, and any help would be greatly appreciated.
The motherboard is capable of 100mhz bus speed, and can support up to 350 Mhz processor. When I bought it they told me the older K6-2 300 processor was not compatible with the 100Mhz bus speed, and they set it to run at 66Mhz. 32 megs of memory came with the system, and I have recently ordered 128mg of pc100 RAM.
I would like to have suggestions about how to utilize my components for the best performance while maintaining reliability.
Can I run the Bus & memory at 100Mhz?
Can I or Do I need to Overclock the CPU to do this?
If the original Memory is 66Mhz Would I be better off just running the 128mg at 100MHz, or all 160mg at 66Mhz?
