...don't overclock your processor so much without water cooling? There's a suggestion. Is it even possible to overclock an Athlon that much?

Don't push it as high. Maybe 1.5ghz:lookaround:? Also do you have a good CPU/Case fans? EDIT: Mr. Matt beat me to it /me gives Mr. Matt the middle finger

If you don't know how to overclock, it's strongly recommended that you don't try it at all. At least not on your current processor. Buy a cheap dummy system of Ebay or something and download some guides off the internet. Learn on a worthless PC first.

There is a sire called Overclockers and they have a forum that is really handy to learn how to overclock and alot of those guys are very helpful. There are several small programs that can make overclocking very easy and you never even have to go into the Bios. One is calle Clock Generator and iit is a good program and I agree with what Mr. Matt said if you dont know how to do it then I would advise that you DONT! You could seriuosly damage you processor!

All cautions to the above agreed upon, when it comes to Overclocking, it's best to have a motherboard that is set up for it. If the only choices you have are 1.2 & 1.7, then you'd better not. OCing is supposed to be done in small increments, like 5-10mHz, and testing between each increase is highly recommended. So is water cooling if you plan to OC more than 100mHz or so.

Get a fan&heatsink that supports the top model XP CPUs. Make sure you have good airflow in your cabinett. I pushed my 1000mhz ---> 1670mhz using fairly cheap fan&heatsink and adding a casefan.
