hello, i have a clocking question.

i have this particular processor, and i am wanting to know what sort of speeds it can handle.
this is what it says on the processor:

AMD Athlon
A0900AMT3B
ARGA 0107GPAW
94803150888
copyright 1999 AMD

i have seen it run at:
700
900
1000
1100

it seemed to panic at around 1100 so i didnt go higher.

is it actually a 900?

is it safe to run it at 1000?

at 1000 it didnt seem to have heat problems.

using a Thermaltake Volcano 6 cu

it seems to run at 40 idle.

anyone have one of these, or you have seen one overclocked, let me know how fast you get yours to run or what a safe speed might be.

i went to amd website, and couldnt find any sort of an answer (not that i expected one)

hi BoB,

i had a 900mhz Duron wich i sucsusfully Oc to 1ghz,and even a little higher (although i did notice a drop in reliability) so i would say that 1ghz would be fine as long as you keep it cool....

But even keeping ti cool wont always be enough as Oc'ing does shorten the life of the component..
