How high do you think this would get?

Northwood 1.8A? It wouldn't get as high as new ones because it's an older stepping, but how high could I expect to get on one of these? 2.5Ghz? 2.8Ghz maybe?

I am currently running my [email protected] 2.52 with the CPU voltage at 1.58 ( asus overvolts by .8 volts) and it is very stable. I will be ordering some XMS pc2700 soon because I believe it will go further. I have the SL66Q chip from Costa Rica. My cpu temp is 28-30c, 42c under load. I do believe 2.8 is not out of the question with better ram.

Generally, 133 FSB is a no brainer (2.4 gig). Any more than that depends on components plus the stepping and age of the CPU (and how lucky you are).

I figured I would push it a little further so I went to 2610mhz. Lo-and-behold it is still stable with pc2100 memory. My temps stayed the same as when I was 2.5ghz under stress with SiSandre Burn-in. My cpu voltage is still 1.58.
