go to the bios and oc the cpu. If the original clock speed was a little over 2ghz then u should be able to oc it there easily. But still I'd keep an eye on the temps while oc'ing.

And if u encounter some problems while oc'ing, then check that the voltage is what it should be.

Dont think the Athlons had CnQ. Sounds like a BIOS setting has screwed up somewhere. Could well be the FSB considering the CMOS reset.

My Athlon 64 (not XP) has Cool 'n' Quiet. Just for the information.

What programs would you use to monitor your processor and video card temperatures?

Is there anything else that should be monitored?

He's asking here because if he asks in his own thread he will criticize any answer that he gets, and I doubt anyone will reply to him now anyways. He failed.
