If you are getting a 1.2GHz overclock on your Athlon XP then you have far exceeded any overclock that I am aware of an XP processor. Most are lucky to get 200-300MHz out of one. As long as your temps are kept below 60*c on full load and you have a decent power supply that can handle the overvolting with consistent rails then see how far you can push it. I figure you are at the breaking point right now, but what they hell, see what she's got.

The barton core was an excellent OC'er back in the day. The 2800+ either ran stock at 1.55volts or 1.65volts. The 2400+, 2500+ and 2600+ ran at 1.45volts. Those were the ones to get in the XP-M series. I'm guessing he's running at or close to 1.7volts.

Hellsaber, I probably wouldn't go any higher then that. What kind of temps are you getting at 1.72 volts?

Good luck

that seems too good to be true. your temp program isnt reading it right. if anyone noticed he is on a stock cooler. but other than that nice overclock you got there
