    I got the Northwood version and Ive heard that you can overclock it pretty high. Anyone know a safe speed it'll reach with the stock cooling?

    I would try for 2.4 and then check your temps. Under 40 (C) is good.

    Is it better (and safer) to raise the FSB first or the multiplier first?
    I have XP 2100 (1736 MHz)
    stock is 133 FSB x 13.0 multiplier
    I want to get it up to 1800MHz so I would do 133 x 13.5

    Just raise it slowly and fully test every time. Once you reach a point where it crashes, kick it back a notch.

    hmm, I just downloaded MBM 5.2 and it says my cpu is running around 42C on average and it isnt even overclocked. Although my case temp is 27C. Is that abnormally high?

    That's not too bad. I've never used the Intel HSF, so I wasn't sure what kind of temps were normal with it.

    I ahve a 1.8 clocked at 2.4. It's on an Asus board. I use teh Inet heatsink and fan that came with it, and have a 2 80mm fans for intake and 2 for exhaust. My the highest temp I have ever seen is 104* when playing quake, running music match, and burning a cd simutaneously.

    55*C is nowhere near overheating man. Mine gets to 55-56 under prolonged heavy gaming. At 70* it will throttle back the cpu and if it gets hotter it will shut the power down.
