K6-2 350Mhz was the first processor I ever overclocked. I was in high school. 98.
Socket 7 I think. It was in a HP Prebuilt. I looked up the model number, and found out what motherboard it had, then found the manual for that motherboard on Foxconns website. Printed it off.
You overclocked that one by capping rows of jumpers to the right of the socket to change the cpu multiplier, lol. It was 3 horizontal rows by 4 vertical rows of 3 pin jumpers (similar to modern cmos jumpers and 12 total). Depending on how you capped them, it would set the multiplier you wanted. The manual I printed had a chart.
I got it from 350MHz to 450MHz which is a 77% overclock. (Mannnnn I wish we could get that on a 3900x!) I kept the stock (tiny) heatsink and added a slightly larger fan that was attached by a single screw and hung over the sink. lol I think the stock fan was like 40mm and I swapped a 60mm fan onto it. That oc made a big difference for what I was doing then, Snes and Neo Geo emulators, and made the difference between 45 fps and a solid 60.
Anyhow thought you might appreciate this- good luck on your build and OC, memory OC, etc. Heres hoping you get that 77% OC on air (Lol). If you need help or advice I'll be around.
