Change Bus Speed?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have an old "thinknic" computer. I took out the old IBM 266mhz processor and replaced it with an AMD k6-2/500, which should clock at 500mhz. The issue is, with a 5.0x multiplyer and (apparently) a 66mhz bus speed, it's not at 500mhz. I'm trying to get to a 100mhz bus speed.

In the BIOS, there isn't exactly a bus speed option. But there are a few other options I'm wondering about:
ISA Bus Clock Frequency: can set as PCICLK/4 (currently), or PCICLK/3, or 7.159MHz
DMA Clock Selection: can set as 1/2 BUSCLK (currently), or BUSCLK
PCI Master Latency: can set as 20H PCICLK (currently), or 40H PCICLK

Will changing any of these options make my bus speed faster?
