    squalidhummer - There's loads of advice in various threads on this forum, just use the search facility.

    You will prob. be able to overclock a little bit with a std cooler, but if you're trying for any decent overclock, you'll need to get a better cooler (again loads of advice in ths forum about coolers).

    How far you'll be able to overclock depends a lot on your motherboard, whether or not your chip's multiplier is unlocked (FSB x chip muiltiplier= CPU speed) and whether or not your memory/GFX card/PCI cards can still work at the higher FSB.

    The easiest way to overclock is just to increase the front side bus speed in your bios. Increase this by a small amount each time (5-10 MHz) and then stress test your PC to see if it's stable.

    Good luck!

    Olly :D
