    I just upgraded to a athlon xp 1600 on a soyo kt333 platinum motherboard with high hopes of overclocking. My main two questions are 1) how high can the temp. get before it becomes unstable. 2) what exactly is unlocking, why is it important?..

    also I'm having trouble finding any overclocking instructions for the soyo kt333 platinum. I remember back in the day you could download files that show exactly all the freqs. and voltages to use but I can no longer find these for such a popular board... can somebody please help me? :confused:

    You have to "unlock" your cpu but crossing the bridges before you can change the multiplyer.
    You can just oc using the FSB though.
    The lower the better, mine runs 31 load, but i have good cooling, my friends run thiers in the 50's fine

    Yes don't worry about unlockin' the CPU just yet and see how ya go by just using the FSB alone to start with plus I like not to exceed 50c with AMD setups. ;)

    lol yeah so did my balance.

    I have seen sticker like things with conductive strips on them. All you have to do is line up the strips with the bridges and viola it's unlocked. Although I think they were like $20 or so. Anyway I will keep an eye out if I see them again...
    New Sig soon, old one was way outdated.

    There is a HEAP of guides for unlocking out there
    If you cant find one somethings not right.
    But make sure you get a XP one, for they are slighty different
