I have the 4200+ X2 which is like 200Mhz higher than yours from the factory.. right now im clocked @ 2.55. Ive gotten it to 2.65 but windows wont boot up... so i downclocked. I also have my HT link @ 600Mhz. Idle it runs at like 30c on full load its at like 47-48c MAX You could probably hit 2.5

maybe the ram. Or then the cpu needs more juice already.
But try putting the ram on a divider and if that doesn't work you could try increasing the cpu voltage. Just be carefull not to do anything stupid with the voltages.

yea i know thats why i said "if you want to overclock it A LOT then you need an aftermarket heatsink" never said anything about needing an aftermarket if your just going to overclock a little, ive overclocked before

yeah you could try that. My cpu (pentium 4) is at 1.55 right now, with a 400mhz overclock. Don't know about amd's that much, never had one but I'd say that 1.6v is fine.
