I have an Asus P4C800 with a P4 2.6C, i want to do any kind of overclocking with the stock kooler. I don't want to buy any extra things. Just wanta do maybe some BIOS tweaking to get more out of my machine. If you have any question just ask thanks for the help!.

What exactly are you asking? Do you want to know how fast you can go with the stock HSF? The best way to find that out is to try it, not all CPUs are the same.

just keep the stock voltage setting in the bios, and keep kranking up the fsb's till its not stable at default voltage. with default voltage, the stock HSF should be fine. max was running his SL6RZ chip at 195fsb with stock HSF.;)

wow. what were his temps? thats amazing it even made it that far.

the point is, if you don't increase your voltage...your temps won't go up by much at all.

btw, welcome to the forums.

If you're overclocking with the stock retail cooler, then you'll need better case ventilation (80mm fans are cheap and easy to install).
