God d*****, Is it possible to get my Athlon XP T-bred 2000+ processor to overclock to 2.1 ghz and possibly beyond without getting a different motherboard and/or increasing the Vcore to 1.85V or higher?

At 2048 mhz, it seems to be stable, because Prime95 was ran for two hours with
0 errors and 0 warnings.

At 2055 mhz, Prime95 always failed. The first time I ran Prime95, Prime95 failed with a rounding error.

Now, some days later, after improving the cooling some more, I decided to run Prime95 again with the processor at 2055 mhz. This time, Prime95 failed with
the illegal sumout error, tried to restart the test by itself, then halted with
0 errors 100 warnings.

This symptom made me want to run Prime95 again just to be sure, because the illegal sumout error was classified as less serious, because the error may not be caused by an unstable processor, but a software problem, a bug :eh?: .

I decided to run Prime95 again, but then Prime95 failed with a rounding error within approximately 15 minutes :(. :bang head
