I have a P3 450mhz, how high could i overClock? MoBo goes upto clock speed of 800mhz Max.

I have tried it upto 500mhz with no problems, could i go upto 600 or even 650/700 with any major problems?
My Fan is a Fan from a AMD chip, but with the propper Pentium 3 [slot-1] heatsink.

I have no other fan, apart from the Power Supply fan.
My motherboard is a VIA 440Zx/Aollo plus - TI6NBF-ATX[82C693] chipset

You could get it to 900.
First submerge the whole mobo, chip, ram, vid in mineral oil, cut a few small holes in your deepfreeze, put the mobo, etc. in the deepfreeze, overclock like hell!

That dude is crazy I dont know what the hell he is tryin to do with Mineral oil. Maybe he wants to eat his computer.

But, what i did with my PIII 650E. Was added a couple of fans, one on each end of the case, and another right near the CPU facing down on it and the GF2. Then turned the poop up. It wouldnt boot after 780 MHz unless i turned up the Voltage. But now its up to 806 and hasnt crashed or froze in months (Voltage is @ 1.75v up from 1.65v).

Maybe you don't understand sarcasm when you hear it.

The question "How high can I overclock ___" is a useless one. Overclocking is not a science, it's an art, and questions like that deserve the answer it got.
