Don't ask how to over-clock.

I have a "new" P-III 500 MHz on my oldest PC (up from PII 350Mhz), MB=Superpower SP-P2BXA and it recognizes the 500MHz, but lists it as PII+MMX 500MHz. I tried flashing Award bios to P2BXA_B6 from P2BXA_B3, but it is not recognized, no change in BIOS (on startup reads P2BXA ver B3) or otherwise it does not work! :( Any recommendations, short of throwing it out a window, are greatly appreciated.

As an aside, I installed a 256MB Centon PC133ONLY chip ($27), but it is a 100MHz system and only recognized 128MB. Still, the PC100 128MB chip was $29, so no BIG pain there. Any way I can get all of it recognized?
