I usually don't o/c my hardware, but I decided to o/c my cpu xp2000+ to a 2100+. I just raised my fbs up 5mhz. My qustion is 5mhz is not enough to do any harm or is it, I should beable to leave it there for awhile don't you think.
If you have decent cooling and the system is stable, its fine Rapture.

Most importantly is the system temperature, if it doesnt exceed 60-65 C then it doesnt take any damage.
What are you using for a heatsink?
Standard retail one that came with it, or an aftermarket?

Actually, I have overclocked my 2100+ to 2200+ (closer to 2250, based on AMD's ratings scheme), and the temps only seemed to have gone up 3-4 C. Right now it's at 1825Mhz (1729 default for 2100+) and it's at around 31C, but I'm using a Swiftech MCX-462 cooler with a delta fan too. Yours should be fine, even with the stock cooler.

Yeah I must say that I'm pretty impressed with the stock cooling fan that AMD provides. I expected something much less productive, but after building 2 XP systems with retail CPUs, I'm sold on the stock cooling.

I'm using a Thermaltake Volcano 6cu with Artic silver 2. So far no problems.
