I have an old Tyan Trinity S1590 that is fixing to be dedicated to SETI. Right now is has a K62-380 overclocked to 400 running in it. Which CPU would be good for maxing it out? The K62-500 or would a slower K63 be better?

BTW, max bus is only 100 and max multiplier is 5... unless it is remapped on the faster CPUs.

i dont have any personal experience with the k6-3, but from what i have read, they are great performing cpu`s. i would suspect that a k6-3 450 would be a little faster than a k6-2 550.

I was kind of thinking the same thing. I figure the improved cache of the K6-3 would make up for the slower MHz. Thanks for the reply.
