Depends what your temps are at idle and load with the cooling installed at the moment. If you could tell us that, it would help a lot. I dont think you will get 3000 out if it, but im not an intel clocker, so i wouldnt know. Bear in mind that it wont be a real "Upgrade", but it might make it faster if you can get it stable.

Since you have a Northwood, I would say you could get atleast +3.0ghz, if your temps stay below 55C load and you ram is atleast rated to handle pc2700 speeds.

At 166fsb-
CPU clock - 3000ghz = 166 x 18
Memory clock - 333mhz = 166 x 2 (this is pc2700 speeds)

You might need to increase Vcore to reach this, but don't go overboard and increase Vcore to +1.7V, because that is when SNDS (Sudden Northwood Death Syndrome) strikes.

your temps look great for OCing, as ckp said, stay under 55c LOAD, and dont go over 1.7vcore and im ver confedent you will break and exceed 3ghz

"because that is when SNDS (Sudden Northwood Death Syndrome) strikes" LoL I love that... hehe. Not really more info to give except maybe you can tell us what type and speed memory you have to see if that may cause an issue with your oc.

THERE! LOL NETHING ELSE YOU NEED?

i also did this. ropey tell me to do that now my clocks on cpu-z goes to 2500 somthing

That about does it

Restart your system and enter the AwardBIOS setup by pressing the <Delete> key upon restart.

Enter your advanced

In step formation:

Set "CPU Speed" to "Manual"
Set "CPU External Frequency" (MHz) to 140 (133 is your unclocked spec)
Leave your "Vcore" at "Auto" ( You will change this later but for now you want to find your maximal overclock without raising the core voltage)


Move to "Chip Configuration"

Set your "SDRAM Configuration" to "By SPD"
Set your "Chipset Clock Mode" to "Asynchronous" (This is referred to a PCI/AGP lock and will keep your agp and pci bus both within their rated specs whilst you raise the CPU. Normally if you did not do this you would raise both your PCI and AGP bus out of spec and would easily render your system instable).
