I have just overclocked my 200 mhz Pentium MMX to 250 mhz at 100 X 2.5 and 2.9 volts. I'm using standard cooling and this is the max I can go.

I can reach 300 mhz but it hangs after 20 seconds.

Can you experts please recommend a good cooler? Also, does good thermal grease plays a part?

I don't have a suck/blow hole.

Use a 80mm fan or anything.With a pentium you don't have to be so careful.
Putting an extra fan in makes a HUGE difference.
Use what you have. A suck/blowhole could be a good idea.
Take off the caseing off to get better cooling without a suck/blow hole.
