I am running at the moment a Athlon 1600xp+ at 19000, Temps just the same CPU 49c System 37c standard CPU coolermaster fan and PSU fan. The system works far better I get no corrupt files, It boots OK Have I missed anything on Win98. Can you see any problems.

As to your Palmino being a good overclocker. AMD have recognised there is a niche market for those of us that like to o/c our cpu's so they have been making alot of their processors unlocked which is why AMD have historically been the o/cers favourite, however Intel have now cottoned on and are releasing chips that are unlocked aswell. Out of the XP series of cpu's the Palamino are considered the worst for o/cing as they are manufactured using older design/technology than the Thoroughbreds and Bartons. This causes them to run hotter when o/ced and hence may cause stability issues. I used to have a XP1800 Palamino o/ced to a XP2000 with no probs at a cpu temp of around 51c. Now I have an XP2800 Barton o/ced to an XP3200 with a cpu temp of around 29c. Hope this clears things up for you and happy o/cing.
