looks like no 350/450 to me...

YES!
U DO CAN install K6-2 350 or 450Mhz on this board,
but U CANNOT USE A K6-2+ OR K6-III ON IT.

Experience from the Pcchips Lottery shows 450MHz should be OK but 500 is too much for the Onboard voltage regulators .
The 450MHz should be the 2.2V CPU and not the older and much more power hungry 2.4V version

?... But how???... if I heard that PCChips M570 - supports only 60/66/75/83 Mhz bus speed... and AMD K6-2 350 - and upper - build on only 100 Mhz bus (ext. clock speed) so there no way to do so...?
...And if I place K6-2 450 (100mhz) on 66 Mhz (Motherboard) clock speed... then I recieve only 297 Mhz... ? and for 83 Mhz bus - it will be 373 Mhz... ? or what?

The K6-2/3's recognize the 2X multiplier as 6X. So, even though the 450 was designed with 100 MHz fsb motherboards in mind, it works fine on motherboards with 66 MHz default fsb.

6x66 = 400
6x75 = 450
6x83 = 500

The processor doesn't care what multiplier or fsb is set, as long as the combination of the two is not too fast for the processor. However, the peripherals, RAM, or motherboard cache may not like 83 MHz fsb.

Not all K6-2 have the 2x=6x thing with the multiplier

It has to be the newer CXT core (26351 on CPU package - older non2x=6x have 26350)
