hey, if you got the right motherboard you should go ahead and overclock that athlon (hope it's a barton, right?). My two 2500+ bartons run fine at FSB200*11=2.2 GHz ~ XP3200+. though you need new memory chips for full performance then icon_mrgreen.gif

Try upping the voltage a little (but monitor CPU temp! you don't want to fry your cpu), or go down to 10.5 or 10.0*200  Reply with quote

No dont do that until your system is running stable. You start messing with that stuff and you can make your computer run in worse shape.
One thing you may want to try is a larger heatsink and fan on your CPU. I know the stock ones that have been comming out lately havent always been getting al the proper cooliung they need. Find something aftermarket that will really scream. And make sure you use some good CPU grease, the stock stuff I find runs from 5 - 10 degrees celcius higher than something like Arctic Silver. If you are worried about your video card overheating, try and find a fan from a 486 heatsink and slap that on there(If you can find one). It might take a bit to rig up, but it pushes a little more air than the stock ATI fan.

One thing you never did mention, what do you have for a motherboard? And, what kind of power supply do you have? One thing that was mentioned is that if the power supply is failling on you, it may reboot your system. Use something like an Enermax power supply, and no less than 350watts when you have an Athlon XP (I've seen them run on alot less, but I really wouldn't trust it).
Watch the voltages on the Power Supply and make sure that everything is where it should be.

Hehe, I like to sell arctic silver to "enthusiasts" too, cause the difference is 2.50€ for a very small tube of arctic silver vs. 0€ for a very big tube of standard thermal grease coming with the cooler, but since arctic silver became popular, we never managed to get more than a single degree celsius temperature difference when a customer let us replace stock grease/heatpads with arctic silver compared to identicall systems icon_wink.gif (and i'm inclined to say that that difference lies within the margin of error).

omgs... Gorb... you are like, the (second) first geeky guy I've ever (kinda) known that has said that Macs do not suck...
and no, this message was not typed on a macintosh computer (though this computer does bow down to the might of the G4 tower downstairs)...

well macs CPUs have been better except for G4, and the OS is WAY WAY better, i mean windows is just utter crap, but i use it for compatibility reasons AND i can make my own PC which is fun icon_biggrin.gif linux is better too but i want to play games so i use windows icon_sad.gif


btw: dont tell me that G4 is good, i saw benchmarks, they had to use dual processors to keep up, how sad is that? and they beat the single P4 system by much less than 100%

btw again: and sep, dont argue with a geek about geeky stuff, you know he's right icon_razz.gif
