Sys Shutdown When Over 350 Mhz (AMD k6-2

By Your Mom 2.0 ·
Just built a machine (mobo is PC Chips m599LMR & has SiS530 chipset, AMD k6-2 500 CPU, & 64 MB PC100 RAM) and I cannot run at anything above 350 Mhz. Anytime I set CPU for anything above 350, sys crashes and/or powers down before I get to Win98...
For the record, I have a cooling fan /heat sink on CPU and two cooling fans mounted inside the case. CPU is PnP configured in BIOS. (2.2 core voltage, bus speeds from 66 to 100Mhz, multiplier up to 5.5x)

Does this sound like a CPU problem, mobo problem, or a power supply problem?

Sys Shutdown When Over 350 Mhz (AMD k6-2

I run two K6-2 500 CPUs. One in a Soyo SY5-EMA+ mobo and the other in a Tyan S1590S board. I have had absolutely no problems. I've used PC Chips boards before and I think they stink. They may be cheap but you get what you pay for. My advice would beto try a different brand of MOB. PC Chips board are very unreliable.

Just b4 I got the PC Chips mobo, I tried FIC's VA503+, which was recommended by AMD. I couldn't even get the BIOS up on that one. The tech support that I bought the board & CPU from thought it sounded like prob's with the CPU and not the board. Anyone know of any BIOS tweaking or card and RAM reseating that may fix this problem?
