Default I think I have a dud CPU.

I have a Athlon XP 2800+ Barton. Does anyone know of any overclocking issues with this CPU?

It runs stock at 2.0 GHz, but I have it overclocked to 2.1 (200x10.5) instead of the normal 166X12.5. I have tried changing it to 200x11, but then it is very unstable, even at higher voltages. I've tried it at 166x13, but it barely even boots!

I've seen people here with Barton 2500+ running at 2.6 GHz, so then I must assume my CPU is fried or just not a good overclocker. Am I right in my assumption, or am I doing something wrong?

My Mobo and the rest of my setup is in my Sig.
