what do i do plz someone explain in great detail for me to understand thx
and what do u think i can get my 1.2 ghz running at ?
What kind of memory do you have?

As for the cpu, it really depends on the chip. Some will go quite high, i think some have gotten that chip over 1.5ghz (maybe higher, im not sure) Other chips wont overclock much at all. What is the stepping printed on the chip? It should be a 4 letter code like AXIA (a good stepping) or some other code. The stepping code is in the upper left corner of the core. If you have the system all assembled with a heatsink alread on it then you probably dont need to take it apart.

Your tempetures look pretty good, but remember that those are not load temps, only bios idle temps, so if you start overclocking and putting a load on the cpu they will go up. Also, what kind of cooling do you have.?

The 100 vs 133 setting is your fsb. Right now it is running at 100 fsb x 12 multiplyer for a speed of 1200mhz. If you could run at 133 then it would be 133x12 for 1596. It is unlickly that your chip will go that fast without really good cooling though.
