Thanks for the reply boost. Okay if I read you correctly, I need to up
the voltage on the chip (which is rated at 2.5v) to 2.8v (the only step
up) and watch the temp.
This FAQ seems to describe a way that I may be able to select more than
the documented voltages:

Problem is, I don't know how to read this table:
Additional core voltage options.
On selected models further core voltage selections may be used even
though no actual jumper option is listed. Two jumpers must be used to
obtain additional voltages that are not listed in the documention or
board surface. Listed below are these optional core voltage options that
can be obtained. Not all models and board revisions will have jumpers
for all core voltages listed below. Only use core voltages for which
your processor (CPU) is rated for!
No voltage jumpers = 2.0v (approx.),
Jumper 2.1 and 2.2 = 2.3v (approx.),
Jumper 2.1 and 2.4 = 2.5v (approx.),
Jumper 2.2 and 2.4 = 2.6v (approx.),
Jumper 2.1 and 2.8 = 2.9v (approx.),
Jumper 2.2 and 2.9 = 3.1v (approx.),
Jumper 2.1 and 3.2 = 3.3v (approx.),
Jumper 2.2 and 3.2 = 3.4v (approx.),
Jumper 2.4 and 3.2 = 3.5v (approx.).
The jumpers are simply five pairs that setup like this in the docs.
1+6 = 2.1 volts reserved
2+7 = 2.2 volts reserved for AMD K6 3D CPU's in the future
3+8 = 2.8 volts for Pemtium MMX and Cyrix 6x86L
4+9 = 2.9 volts for AMD K6 PR2-166200MHz and Cyrix 6x86MX
5+10= 3.2 volts for AMD K6 PR2-233MHz
The most obvious interpretation is that if I use a jumper to select
2.1volts (pins 1+6) and add another jumper for 2.4volts (which I don't
see), I get a total of 2.5volts(?) Makes me think this mobo is NOT a
But are you also saying I could only do this in this motherboard with a
Thanks for the help and sorry for the peskiness, but the more I read
about this stuff, the more confused I get.
