You may not be able to get more. What kind of proccesor do you have, and how much RAM?

hey bob, get a little fan for it and heat sinks to place on the mem, then dl a registry patch from cnet or 3dfx.com and it will let u overclock teh core to up to 220 mhz, i have only gotten it to run stable with no glitches at 207 though(used a cheap fan.)

umm.. compusa would be my guess, i just use the one my friend put on my pentuim 233...
just find one that fits right on to its heatsink(that size of one) and when u get that i'll email u the registry edit.
then u just slide the bar http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/smile.gif

There's a fan made specifically for it, it's called a Voodoo Fighter. I think you can find it at www.voodooextreme.com (http://www.voodooextreme.com)

Just get a Blue ORB, a bunch of RAMsinks, and some artic silver. Put some Artic Silver on the RAMsink and the BLORB. Then d/l the registry patch that allows you to overclock. You could try to overclock your CPU as well. That P2 300mhz could reach as high as 350 with good cooling.

I made a mistake.... I changed my above statement to 350 to please certain parties. :::cough:::: jdblitz :::cough:::

Uhhh, so your gonna run the p2 @ 200 mhz fsb? or is p2 still @ 66? kuz I would like to see wcpuid for p2 @ 200 mhz without mod'd board. http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/biggrin.gif
