Hi All

Without doing any physical work on my processor, what is the higest speed my CPU can run at, without frying it.

I curently have it up to 1754 (AMD XP 2100+) I guess, I did push it up to XP 2200 speeds but got Window 2000 boot up errors.

I have tried evan to push it above the XP 2200 speeds but I get a General Protection Error when booting off of a device.

Thanks

Richard Farthing

Looks like your limit then. If you want it to go any higher, you're going to need better cooling. What mobo, processor, HSF, and case do you have right now?

I currently have a standard upright case with just the power supply and CPU fan (I could put another on the front of the case). The fan on the CPU is a Igloo2400.

The CPU is at 41^, this is not that bad is it.

No, your temps are fairly good. There really is no limit that anyone can say. Just go slowly, and benchmark your computer to test for stability. You could also unlock your CPU with an XP unlocking kit. You will be able to overclock more with this modification. If you are interested in more overclocking than that, you might look into a better HSF combo. The Volcano 7+ is a very good fan with variable speed control. For ultimate performance, try the Thermalright AX-7 coupled with a high air flow fan and some Artic Silver 3 thermal paste. Just remember, go slowly and benchmark in between to find your maximum stable setting.
