Smile 2800+ Barton Overclocking


I recently bought an AMD Athlon XP Barton 2800+ CPU and was wondering how much I could overclock it using my FSB. My mainboard is a Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro2 and the FSB goes up to 600MHz and my chipset is a NVIDIA nForce 2 Ultra 400. The board allows me to change the FSB and VCore settings by 10%. Also would a Volcano 7 be a better heatsink than the stock standard one that came with my processor?

I also have another computer with a 2500+ barton in it with the same mainboard as mentioned above. It also has a Volcano 12 heatsink. So would the 2500+ be better for overclocking than the 2800+?

Thank you in advance for your time and help.

the stock heatsink is probably junk. The volcano 12 is better.

I wish I had a computer but I am broke!!!
