    whatsthe voltage your running on the cpu? seems about right since my craptastic goes over 70 full load (before when i pushed it to 1.75+ Vs). just dont let go past 65'c and your good. if it does look for a better colling solution or lower the clock and voltages.

    OK, well, I just installed a Thermalright SI-97 and an extra case fan... temps are now down to about 45c under load. CPU diode temp is usually only about 1 degree higher... and the stability problems are gone. But I still can't get it to go over 2.3GHz, even with vcore at max.

    So it looks like the best I can do is prime95/superpi stable at 2.3GHz with 1.775 vcore. Got a blue screen at 1.750v.

    wow i guess i have a pretty good chip then. mine is prime stable at 2.22ghz at 1.600vcore at 50c idle, high 50s to low 60s full load after a few hours. this is a silent rig, so my oc is limited by temps.

    What type of Fan is on there? 45C load seems a bit high. I've been at 2.5/1.8V under an si97 with a 92mm H1A at about 38C load.

    45 Load is actually very normal for an AXP-M especially with increased voltage. 38 degrees load is VERY VERY low for XP's. You're into A64 territory there, and that's really cool. Don't worry about your 45 load. When you start hitting over 50 though, that's when you need to start worrying.

    Must be a cherry chip I've got then. :D

    I switched the cpu fan for a 92mm vantec tornado and changed the position of the extra case fan, and now it's usually just over 40 under load. Still won't overclock further. :(

    If you want to overclock further, you'd have to up the Voltage more, but more voltage = more heat means you need better cooling.

    My XP-M wouldn't do over 2.3 ghz (1.7v) Until I went water cooling. Now it does 2.5ghz @ 1.8v. I just did a volt mod, but waiting on my new pump to come in, so I'm hoping to hit 2.8ghz @ 2.0v :D

    my old 2600 mobile did 2.6 ghz at 1.7v 2.8 at 1.9 probably but my poor slk-800 couldnt handle it :p

    Max voltage for my board is 1.825v... but if I try that at 2.4ghz, it blue screens or restarts before I even get to windows. Idling at about 36C (in bios), so I don't really think it's a heat problem. I can boot into windows at about 2.35ghz, but get lots of problems. Think it's because I have to take the FSB above 200 to get that clock speed.

    Just sounds like your chip can't handle the step then.

    Athlon XP Mobile 2500+ @2507MHz 1.875v (200x12.5)

    Thermaltake Volcano 12 Extreme Edition @ 5500RPM's

    Idle: 34C
    Load: 48C

    When I boot at 200x13 (2600MHz) I get to the Windows XP login screen and it crashes. Maybe more voltage, or my heatsink can't dissapate all the heat this thing puts out. I just installed the chip like 10 minutes ago so I guess I can expect to gain a few more MHz once my thermal paste sets up. Watercooling should be here soon as well so well see how high I can get then, hoping for at least 2.8-2.9GHz on water but that's prolly wishful thinking.

    Edit: Added temps.
