    Alright guys. Yes I admit it I am a newb when it comes to this crap but I know a thing or two and have good programs to monitor it etc. I want to know how much I can overclock my AMD Athlon XP1800 and how I do it. I talked to this one kid who didn't know a thing and he told me to up my multiplier 1.5 simply went into the bios and did it, then I rebooted and it wouldnt boot or anything... I had to wait about 1/2 hour then It booted but wouldnt go past the XP loading screen, I then went back into the bios and changed it back to the default which is 11.5, I'm currently running at 1533mhz with a lot of ram, If anyone can help me plz respond on my topic or email me at sekul18@aol.com or can IM me at SeKul18 I also have MSN Messenger - SeKul18@hotmail.com

    -Thanks Guys,
    -Luke

    Well for starters it would be handy to know what core that Athlon XP has as Palamino and Thoroughbred A cores arn't that good overclockers (about 1900MHz would be around the max) but Thoroughbred B's are very good and can reach around 2.1-2.5GHz. Also knowing what mainboard you have and what speed memory would also help.

    I can't find that model but are you sure that you didn't mean the KX400-8X?
