My B&W 300 (overclocked to 35

My B&W 300 (overclocked to 350) with 192MB RAM runs 10.3.7 rather decently. It's no speed demon, and my AlBook could eat it for lunch, but it's bearable.

First hit on a Google search (hint, hint) for "overclock B&W G3" is this.

I overclocked my b/w 350 chip

I overclocked my b/w 350 chip to a 450 and its rock stable (in a beige with a heatsink and fan though).

Depends on how far you overcl

Depends on how far you overclock it. With my B&W, I could only bump it 50MHz, from a 300 to a 350. At 400MHz the machine wouldn't even boot.

Others have reported that some overclocks are rock-stable, and others make the machine unstable. It really depends on your machine...no two B&Ws will overclock identically.

A great place to look for info on this is over at xlr8yourmac.com.

My beige with the overclocked

My beige with the overclocked 350 to 450 will run for weeks on end with no reboots and never crashes. It is as stable as any computer that I have.

9.2.1 or 10.2,8

I normally leave it on 10.2.8 long term but once in a while i will reboot into 9.2.1.
