No one has written anything for awhile about overclocking the Cyrix processor so I was wondering what results people have had. What clock speed are you running? Is it stable? How long have you run it at this speed? I realize that the Cyrix chip naturally runs hot so installation of a fan is a given.
The main reason I am posting this is to see if anyone out there would be willing to make the OC changes to my Webplayer (i.e. soldering). When it comes to soldering, I'm all thumbs. So come on Hackers, help me out! My email address is email@example.com .
Not one chip is identical to another. So they all react differently on a different frequency. That's why a whole bunch of chips
from the same batch will be tested and depending on the results will be devided in to different classes of specification.
A microprocessor is mostly devided by its capability of running high clock frequency. A cpu stamped with 200MHz will fall in the
same scope of specification as long as you keep it running on that frequency. If you overclock there's no one who could you what
will happen. Ten people can tell you here they have there's running with 266MHz without any problems and yours maybe just not boot
anymore. Who knows? There's only one way to find out and that is trying it. The processor in the webplayer can get very unstable
when overclocked, but again yours might run well. Be sure to have sufficient cooling when you start experimenting with overclocking.
I wouldn't mind modifying your webplayer but I don't think it's wurth shipping it twice.
You could take fine tip pliers and pry R97 off the board. You will have 266MHz. Of course chances of being unstable is higher
then overclocking to 233MHz. For that you have to short R98 in some way. There's conductive ink on the market for that. It is
used for reparing mainboards but you could use this instead of soldering in this case.
