It's a case of experimentation. If it goes wrong it's your fault. I have a 1600xp that I have run for a week at 1900 by altering the fsb to 150/150 but not all at one go, up one notch at a time, without probs just to test. I have run at 1700 ever since.

ive been told to put my vcore to 1.85 in bios and then up the fsb 3 at a time is this correct??

You need to know the Volt on the CPU before you change it, under the fan. Then change in bios

ALl about the L12 mod

It will change your cpu to a 166 mhz fsb instead of 133. So then you will be able to get awesome overclocks

I did it to my XP2000 as a bit of an expo as it was a spare processor as i use a XP2700+ now.

It now is very fast, and requires less voltage too. to get great overclocks, just remember you need at least pc2700 ram, ideally pc3200 ram, and a motherboard that supports the new fsb.
