    So, if I am reading this correctly, your stock speed is 1.6GHz, and you have successfully gotten it up to 1.72GHz, but either at that speed or higher, the system is unstable or won't boot?

    If so, you might be able to bump up your voltage on your processor to get that little bit extra out of the processor. BE WARNED. Increasing the voltage will cause the processor to generate quite a bit more heat, so you will need to make sure your heatsink and fan are up to the task.

    There is no guarantee that this will work and you make these changes *AT YOUR OWN RISK*. There is always the potential of frying components when overclocking.

    I can't give you any solid number, because each processor is completely different. One Sempron 2800+ may be able to overclock well over 2.0GHz and another one may crash if you bump it up at all. (I'm not saying either is the case with yours)

    Now as far as how much should you actually bump it up, just take it in as small of increments as possible while keeping an eye on your temperatures.
