    Should be able to mate, I'm unsure yet, I'm just a novice at this, just stated OC'ing my AMD Athlon 64 FX-55 (2.6Ghz) currently got it running steady at 2.8Ghz and I think that is good so far with it being stable for it being my first ever CPU overclock hehe =)

    Best bet to get help with it is to wait for someone who has a lot of experience in overclocking to reply and possibly take pointers from them like I am from Solaris17 ;)

    Though it should be possible mate.

    Sure, I took my AthlonXP 2500+ from 166Mhz x 11 (1833MHz) 1.65V to 250MHz x 10 1.85V. It was a mobile CPU on a DFI Lanparty nF2 Ultra-B and air cooled - Thermalright SI-97. From what I've heard it's really hard to get the FSB high on some boards, but if your multiplier is locked (it's not a mobile chip) then you are stuck with FSB. Maybe try taking it to 200, a lot of 2500+es will go to 200x11 (3200+ speeds) at maybe 1.70V or so.
