I don't know what your actual headroom on that part might be, but 600MHz is extremely optimistic IMO. Remember, this IS still a 0.25 processor whereas the K6-x+ parts are 0.18.

I'm guessing you will get 550MHz if you're lucky, and 500/504 are more reasonable prospects. Even the 0.25 K6-2 parts made 600MHz+ only rarely.

Heatsink -- check out this page at the CoolerGuys, the GlobalWin FOP38 would work as would either of the last two Alphas on that page (PAL6035 and PEP66T). Personally, I've been pleased with the PAL6035 but the FOP38 hadn't been released at that time so I can't really compare. Basically any Socket7 or Socket-370 heatsink will work but in your case, you obviously want something reasonably big.
