    i got an amd 2000+ CPU for FREE LOL, my dad got it from a busted pc at his work and the chip is still good,

    now i want to experment on over clocking a bit here
    how high can i fo with the FSB? like how high have other people gone on this chip? my bios can go to 400 and i got a volcano 9 with AC3 between it,

    so how high safely (without smoking) can i go with it????

    would be sweet if you upeed the voltage and managed to run it at 333fsb (2075mhz!). not sure if that's possible, though. i think others have done it. you might need to unlock it and lower the multiplier a bit.

    If its the original 0.15 micron die you will max out at a combined fsb times multiplier of 2100-2200. That's a limit to the palomino design. I haven't seen anyone get any faster than that even with refrigerant based systems. BTW you can modify the chips with some super glue and rear window defogger repair paste to allow for multiplier overclocking as well as fsb overclocking (I did mine). Check out www.tomshardware.com for details.

    If it's one of the newer 0.13 micron thoroughbred die the limit is up around 3 gig with adequate cooling.

    I only went to a FSB of 139MHz. Any more than that I think I'll have problems with harddisk corruption. I wish my mobo had a 5:1 divider. Even so, my BIOS now thinks I have a 2100+ :)

    Haven't unlocked the multiplier because its "factory" set to 12.5 and my mobo only has a max multiplier of 12.5. So even if I unlock it, I won't get anywhere.

    does this only count for the 2000+? cuzz I have a first gen 1800+ running at 1.93ghz with a volcano 9 stable (about a 2400+)
