    My Epox NForce2 motherboard works great, it's cheap and a very stable overclocker, see my sig.

    The MSI K7N2-Delta, which I'm using at the moment, is a really nice board. It is rock-solid, comes with lots of stuff and has some nice overclocking features. My Barton 2500+ AQZEA is running at 11*220 without any problems at all.

    If you want to do some hardcore-overclocking, and have some extreme cooling solution, you might want to go for the ABIT NF7 Rev 2.0 instead. I'm going to test it as soon as it arrives, which should be tomorrow or so. If you can wait, I'll let you know about my impressions.

    i read about the k7 delta, i was goin to get it myself. but i saw that some website tested it with a 2800+ and they said some features like hte multiplier didn't wok well with it. i don't want to hall balls on the fsb but i want to fast.(i only run 133 now ) but i think i will take your advice for now and go ahead and buy it. also my board now has things like over cpu vcore function and over ddr vcore function. are these voltages. and can anyone tell me what i can do to increase fsb. everytime i switch from 133 the computer doesn't boot, so i have to clear the cmos and start over. i have an xp 2400+ now(fsb 266 max). i just want to go faster. would appreciate all the help and answers. thanks

    Yes, Vcore is the Voltage for the CPU, and the voltage for the ram is normally called Vdimm. If you raise these values, your system should run more stable and be ready for some overclocking. But be aware: overclocking generates more heat, and so does raising the Vcore. 1.8 for the CPU is generally considered as the upper limit; if you go higher, you run a very high risk of damaging your CPU.

    If you want to raise the FSB, you should first try to *decrease* the multiplier. This way it should be more stable. For example, a 2500+ actually runs on 11*166 = 1826 MHz. If it can't go faster than that, even with an increased VCore - bad luck. But I would still recommand to let it run with something around 9*200, because a higher FSB does not only increases the performance of the CPU.

    If you can't increase the FSB, it might also be due to the rams you're using. But in your case, your CPU might be locked. The 2400+ has a Thoroughbred core, which is sometimes hard to overclock.

    If you try to increase the voltages - keep an eye on the temperature!

    There's a lot to know about overclocking. I suggest you search the web for some extensive guides.

    they are some other alternatives and are very very decent overclockers.
