    Ok ive just unlocked my XP2100 and set the multiplier to 11 and fsb to 166 to get 1826 mgz. My idle temps are now 50C and under 100% load for several hours of video encoding I hit around 58C. Are these temps acceptable or is time to upgrade that cooler (possibley to water cooling)?

    These temperatures are pretty much over limit for your processor . You haven't specified the type of cooler that u're currently using .. there are some factors that the temperature depends ..

    From what I have seen those temperatures are pretty well within the tolerance level. Maybe the idling is a bit high but nothing to worry about. My p4 idles at around 40c & under full load get to about 51c.

    Well, my XP 1900

    ran at about 70c for three months, untill I got a volcano 9, now runs at 32c idle, 38c load.

    So, don't worry.

    Is that one of the T-bred Athlons or the Palomino core? If it the Palomino core, that's cool, cause I was wondering how stable they would be at the 166 clock.
