    You didn't state at any other point that you got a dated version as you just said a 5AX.
    Why do ya have to persist in ancient stuff? Ya could have got the 5.1 that's been around for a year now. :confused:
    Ok then it's a version 4.1 now is it the 1st release or 2nd? :?:

    Well that board would have to be over 2yrs. :eek:

    Ok then try this.

    Multipier 5 SW1-X, SW2-O, SW3-O.

    Voltage 2.2v SW4-X, SW5-O, SW6-X, SW7-X, SW8-X.

    FSB 110MHz JP7/8/9 all 1-2 and JP10 2-3.

    The BIOS settings should still be the same as before.

    O = On
    X = off
    Maybe that's where ya went wrong because if ya done that to the multiplier it would give you 250MHz. :?:

    nope - i followed the manual, and set the switches and jumpers exactly as it sez

    current settings (as described in manual):
    k6-2 500 @ 2.2v (100*5)

    1 off
    2 on
    3 on
    4 off
    5 on
    6, 7, 8 off

    JP6, 7 1-2

    JP9 2-3

    JP10 1-2

    for 2.4v, SW5 and 6 are reversed

    (yeah, i know the one you just posted is for the 450... ;) and i had followed the specs in the manual for that also, when i had the 450 in it )

Even the later boards only report it as a K6-3 and that enough and those settings will get a K6-3+450 runnin' at 550.

    A standard K6-2 500 it is as ya just said though if ya have SW1/2/3 the opposite way around that will give ya a multipier of 2.5 which equals 250MHz. :smokin:

    ok, well, i tried them settings, and guess what?

    it no worky! i.e., no boot, nada, nothing.....

    so, i set to the following, right from the manual for the 450 chip, the same as i had with problems before

    (2.4v, it says on the chip, btw)

    sw
    1, 2, 3 and 6 are ON
    4, 5, 7, and 8 are OFF


    jp7 1-2
    JP8 1-2
    jp9 2-3
    jp10 1-2

    in BIOS, i set:
    cpu internal cache enabled
    external cache enabled
    cpu write allocate enabled
    DRAM timing FAST
    CAS Latency AUTO
    DRAM integrity mode disabled

    it boots, and shows:

    AMD K-6/III/450


    no problem there....
    so i get to windows, and things SEEM faster, or it may just be my imagination, since SANDRA shows:

    on system summary page:
    225mhz :eek:
    50Mhz FSB

    cpu + biso page:

    225mhz
    multiplier 4.5
    model info is shown correctly
    FSB 50Mhz
    the "tips" says to enable ECC on L2 for stability - well, isn't that the "cpu internal cache", which is enabled?

    sandra also sez the mobo is v 1.00 but below that it says OEM revison 2E.31 ....

    now, i'l post this, attempt to play a game (Bumper Wars - ya GOTTA try it!) and see what happens

    oh yeah, here's a screenshot:
