Increase the fsb bus tiny amounts at a time since those athlons had multiplier locked. I would go +5mhz jumps until u see its unstable then add a little voltage. I remember a while back I ocd my old 5000+ windsor. They arent very good ocers to begin with. I was only able to push it to 3ghz from 2.66 @1.35v if I remember correctly.

That is some ancient history right there. Chuy mostly has it right. The Windsors do OC better than Brisbane, though, so be glad you've got one of those.

What you want is to follow an "isolate and consolidate" strategy. It's similar to what you do with newer AMD CPUs, but not entirely.

Here is an old guide you could follow:

There may be similar information in the archives of OCN. Poke around and see what you can find.

If you are willing to tell us what are your BIOS settings @ 2.4 GHz, maybe we can help you ourselves.

i think you have that backwards. here's a screen i made using a very high htt/fsb on a 3600 brisbane. i don't see the windsor doing much over 2500mhz.

Eh, the 65nm process was immature when Brisbane launched. Most people had better luck with Windsors, especially those pushing past 3 GHz. My Brisbane wouldn't go past 3.2 GHz, while many Windsors could do more.

Thanks guys my stupid motherboard dont even list fsb setting and i cant even access the vcore setting but with my own tinkering around i managed to get to 2.32ghz stable.Though cpu does run under stress at 52°c .My bios only has upgrade via floppy disk in the update utility.

I can quite possibly push it more. I had it on a stock phenom heatsink with the copper heatpipes. Maybe with a 212 it can go higher? That cpu is just gathering dust in my garage. better pull it out...
