What does AFR mean??
I was looking at some K6-2 400mhz's on Ebay and some of them had AFR behind the speed. What does this mean?
Thanx in adv.

There were a few other innovations in the nomenclature of the CXT core chip as well as some confusion by the AMD's decision to sell some of the chips that did not meet the requirements for the 100 MHz bus threshold and were labeled as AFR / 66 MHz chips.
Hope it helps ...

They are labeled at 66mhz but I've had a few of them (all of the ones I've owned) at 75mhz and 83mhz if the board supports it. They would run at 100mhz on the one board I tested them with and it was stable with other non-AFR chips. It would only run 100mhz with the L2 cache disabled.

66mhz is exactly what I need. I'm thinking of upgrading an old computer of mine and the mobo (an Epox) only goes up to 66.

I had wondered that myself.

I have one of these that's a 450 but my board only supports 400. (have to buy a new bios chip to go past 400). What should I set it up as? 5x75? Leave the voltage alone?
It's a K6-2 450 AFR 66 (I think) on an old Amptron AT board with 66mhz ram.
Options in bios:
Multiple goes up to 5.5 I believe.
Thanks for your help.
The mobo is an Amptron PM-9100 Super TX3
I mainly asked for your suggestions because I tried a couple of different settings and it crashed horribly both times.

Try 6x66. (It's really 66.66) Just set the multipliers on your mobo to 2x. The K6-2 will read it as 6x.

Thanks, I will try that. HotRod also pm'd me some good info to try.
