Thanks guys.  I've only managed to get up to 175Mhz but windows freezes on me under stress.  With around 100mhz clock speed (2015 from 1919mhz) I might as well leave it.  Though, i've sort of learnt how to OC.

Not a bad go at it Akyra, well done......  My ASUS MOBO has a 200MHz FSB so I'm able to run my Barton 333Mhz 2600+ at 2100Mhz (10.5x). I haven't messed with volatages much, cause I'm not keen of frying anything....plus I have stock coolers... Still, a bit of fun..... All the best.
