    hey i'm selling my pc very soon, so i'm thinking head for the new pc.

    I will have this Case attached below, it will have 3 80mm and 1 92mm case fans. i will have asus a7v8x (i think thats the name) the asus kt400, with 2200+ 1.8ghz with a valcano 9. i dont know anything about these "Thoroughbred" core cpu's. how much do you think i can get this cpu unlocked, and stable? thnx

    and if u suggest other products please feel free.

    they don't seem to be that bad of a overclocker, you just have to watch the cooling, the T-Bred core is smaller .13, so it has less surface area to displace heat, but I've seen peeps with them above 2 GHz

    if seen people peel off the old k6-2 heat caps on thermal glue them to their new processors with a generous amount on the processor die to create more surface area.. and overclocked them far beyond what you could do without that mod. Sould think about it
