So tell me the acceptable Voltage CPU Value. and how can i reduce it?????

Hmmm... I think that 1.7v is the normal operating temperature for the Athlon XP. Try reducing the volts till ur comp refuses to boot. After that, go back to the last value at which ur comp booted. If u wanna OC it further, then pump more volts. But don't go over 1.7v as u only have stock cooling.

But i have no veriable for vcore voltage in my mother board bios. So tell me if it is acceptable value or not. and 1.71 is dangerous or redece my processor life in future.. thanks for ur post

If it is not able to change the Vcore setting, then it is still at stock. According to AMD's specs for that processor, it has a nominal voltage of 1.65V, so I think you are close enough to spec (allowing for slight sensor error and variance in each chip) that you don't need to worry about it.

Congratulations! That 2167MHz speed puts it exactly matched to a Athlon XP 3000+. As far as reducing processor life, that is caused by heat, so keep an eye on your temps.

I had an AthlonXp 2600+ running @ 2.08Ghz at stock speeds... I guess 2.17Ghz isn't 3000+....

The difference is in the cores:

T-bred B 2600: 2.08GHz

Barton 2500: 1.83GHz
Barton 2800: 2.08GHz
Barton 3000: 2.17GHz

Hehe,... the k7s8x,... well,... what can I say....

Good news: I have the same motherboard as my backup system.
Bad news: It's at a friends place at the moment, so unfortunately I can't take a look at the bios right now. Furthermore it's definately not a great overclocker, and if your system is stable (download and run prime95, at least 4-8 hrs. For absolute stabilty 24hrs) at that clock, you've done quite nice.

Here's a few links to look through. Sorry,... too tired right now,...

http://www.ocworkbench.com

http://www.ocworkbench.com/2004/articles/ocduron/p1.htm

http://www.google.com/custom?domains...D%3A1%3B&hl=en


As you can see from the second link you'll pobably need to change jumper settings on the mainboard itself. It's a fairly complicated board to work with,...
Also, take a look at the 2nd bios screenie in that link. It shows an option for "over vcore voltage", with which you gain an extra 5% on your vcore. Just remember to watch your temps when messing with your vcore.

I'll probably go by my friends place one of these days, take look, and note a few things down. But like I said, if it's stable, that ain't too bad. Coz stability is another issue with this "lady"
