Freakin awesome!! Is the increased height an issue?
I was pondering trying to get cnc copper replicas made of the oem spreader. I have a spare lid I can send off.
What cpus are those from? Did you have to shorten or modify them at all? I see you sanded them to the copper on top and bottom perimeter.
Btw idk if you saw my report about recent cpus I’ve modded but I keep getting failed super pi runs on multiple systems. I can’t figure out why. But the cpus are stable in everything else. What’s particularly interesting is that it is happening on my OEM 550 3+. So I’m convinced the cpus aren’t at fault. I’m still unclear what the issue is though. Maybe software, maybe other hardware. Unsure. But it’s on multiple systems.
Re: SUCCESSFUL K6-2+ to K6-3+ Full Cache Enable Mod I added this to the k6 mod guide btw 😀
The height could be a problem. It depends on the cooler you own. G3virus encountered some problems, the he switched cooler, and that cooler fitted just fine.
About the cpus. We scrapped a socket fm1 amd a6 dual core apu, and a 754 sempron cpu. The heatspreader on those cpu:s are identical.
Our K6-2+ cpus modded to k6-3+ halted at the boot screen with l2 cache error codes. So it was a no go.
Still they run 100% stable at 672mhz! ( 112x6 ).
The sad thing is that my k6-3+ at 616mhz is faster then those cpus. That extra 128kb l2 cache makes all the difference.
