    Well after days of trying to overclock and run burn in tests and tweaking with my BIOS, as of now I am running an AMD Athlon Mobile 2500+ at over 3200+ speeds. My exact specs are: 210 x 11 = 2310MHz. Im so excited. Still not excited about my crappy 3dmark01 score of 5696. But, I'm going to try to do a little more tonight! Right now my CPU is at 43'C (105'F). Tell me what you guys think.

    That's pretty impressive, and at 43C it's pretty cool too.

    Well, I think I found my limit, for now. I have the settings at 207 x 11.5 = 2380MHz. I can get 210x11.5=2415MHz but things in Windows start glitching, sound crackles, and every once in awhile Windows will restart during boot up. So I think this is my final stable speed for now. I dont think its too bad at all though, eheheh. Sisandra shows a little over 3000MB/s for my memory benchmark too, so I'm happy with that. Right now my memory timings are 3-3-3-11, if I try to get them any lower, the screen will go blank and wont turn on. heh, and to think I've never overclocked before in my life since yesterday.
    Later,

    What are you useing to stress it before you decide that it's stable? If it's not stressed long enough to prove stability you may corrupt your registry and be force to reinstall your OS.. I wouldn't decide it's stable to quickly.

    Sounds like a good clock speed though. I got a Athlon 1700+ running at 2609mhz.. My 2500+ barton only reaches a little over 2300mhz before it fails, I'm running at 2200mhz on it now..
