    Ok i have this beast oc`ed to 1750 mhz all from the bios.

    Im not one for soldering bits on the cpu so does anyone know what i can expect to reach ?

    If i use the windows overclocking tool that came with the mobo it goes to 1800 without a problem.

    Only reason i ask is i had a Celeron 1 gig and if i oced it to say 103 FSB windows no longer booted and a system file was corrupted.

    I realy dont want to start having to reimage my OS so if anyone knows what i can expect from this baby i would love to hear from you..

    There is no soldering required to overclock your XP toy. Check this out for a means to unlock the processor and go even higher.

    As to how high you will go, that depends on several factors. The only real way to find out is to play around with it and see how high it will fly. :)

    Yup...eventually you will hit your limit and then just tone it down a bit...until you are stable...You can prolly hit 148 FSB which is 1.84 ..a bit higher than a 2200+. That is where my 2000+ is completely stable ...150 FSB (1.88) is good but not too stable.

    Again only increase your voltage if you have to. Usually a small voltage increase will give you the stability you need on a certain FSB setting. Some people like WiGGo has his at 150 FSB without a voltage increase. I, on the other hand at 147 i needed nothing yet at 148 a small voltage gave the stability i needed. At 150 i went to bit higher but stability was never good so i decided to stay at 148 and have been there since.

    Now that's not quite right as I have a Gigabyte's 5% increace in voltage due to minor little things happenin' every now and again, but not anymore. :D

    As a general rule, a decent air-type cooler will have no problems with voltages up to 1.85v, but if you decide to go higher (or mod the mainboard so it CAN go higher), then you should start to look into some extreme cooling techniques like water.

    What is the best water cooling solution? Is there a consensus or is it more case specific?
