Conclusion

Our successful overclocking of the three Pentium III 500Es that we purchased from three different vendors is a favorable indication of just how well the PIII 500E coppermine CPUs overclock. I've seen several reports of really good numbers with some of the coppermine CPUs. I've only seen one request for help with getting a PIII 500E to overclock past 550Mhz, but that doesn't mean there aren't plenty such requests out there. Judging by the success we had with three out of three PIII 500Es, I'd say it would be a good chance (obviously no guarantees) that for around $240 you could get a PIII 500E CPU that would overclock to at least 667Mhz.

UPDATE: One of our fellow overclockers shares his experiences in overclocking a 500E that had striking similarities with CPU #3 in this review. Click the link to the next page to read about CPU #4.
