    ok so i got this cpu for my uncle,and for whatever reason cant pull to much info up on google about it..Intel Pentium 4 2.5Ghz/512K Cache/400FSB the stepping code is SL6PN and here is a link to the info http://processorfinder.intel.com/details.aspx?sSpec=SL6PN

    what i want to know is what core this chip is and how far u think i can clock this on stock intel hsf?

    That should be a Northwood. It's 130nm and 400fsb. Heat wasn't actually as bad on the Northies as some later models. 2.9-3.0 shouldn't be a problem.

    don't put much over 1.7v on it they have a real urge to fry right around that point;)

    Yeah, but I wouldn't even bother upping the voltage on the crappy Northwood hsf, anyway.
