Thanks, PTherapist. Now, what if I use AMD K6-2 300 instead?
I will use the same setting you used; I will set FSB to 50MHz, so the CPU would run at 300 MHz. But unlike you, I will not underclock the K6-2, because it is already a 300 Mhz CPU anyway. As such, I will overvolt the CPU (because I will not use VRM), while not underclocking it, because it's a 300 Mhz CPU anyway.
Will I have problems?
The reason I'm asking this is because AMD K6-2 300 is cheaper and more plentiful than AMD K6-2 500 anyway. Well at least on Ebay.
Not entirely sure, but it may not run at 300MHz, you might end up with a clock speed somewhere between 150-200MHz. The K6-2 300 uses a 4.5x multiplier which this motherboard does not officially support, thought it might if configured to 2.0x or 1.5x - in which case you might be ok, if it's stable at that top speed.
Take the K6-2 400 in my example for instance, that will not run at 300 and at 50MHz FSB I was getting below 200MHz out of it. Had to opt for 210MHz @ 60MHz FSB. If I wanted to take it up to 300MHz, I'd have to go with another K6-2 500 CPU instead.
