I've had this processor for a few years now. replaced the stock fan and heatsink with ones from newegg here. I started researching overclocking it lately. being its 1.84 is not very flattering in todays 3.x. so i dont know the first thing about overclockin a processor except that in the research i've done i hear its a very good processor to overclock. a couple of sites told me that i should up the fsb a few mhz at a time, and take a temperature check. btw i believes its 133fsb X 11 stock. i downloaded CPUCool for temperature reference. i was shocked when it sed my stock 2500 with the bigger newer fan was runnin at 55C . and over 60C with load. so even in open air with my room fan on it its still 45C idle. so my questions are
1. y is my cpu so hot and how can i cool it
2. what do i need to do to overclock it (specifics if possible, im not up to speed with this cpu type stuff)
im hopin that CPUCool is just not accurate because as far as i know that is runnin really hot.
