Default Amount I can over clock a 1900+

I have an AMD 1900+ running on an Asus A7S333 Mobo... i was wondering if anyone knows the amount I can safely overclock this by... or if there is a resource that could tell me!

Im not too sure but if you are going to overclock it then you might want to get a custom cpu heatsink from a store. just a thought

15'' Macbook Pro
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.16ghz
x1600 128MB
Windows XP/Mac OSX 10.5

In my opinion, there are three things that will limit your ability to overclock this processor.
1. The BIOS on your mobo. I recently built a sys and the BIOS had no method of changing voltages or frequencies, so i had no method to increase the clock speed of the CPU.
2.Temperature - If you are able to increase the speed of your processor you want to watch your temps. Some would say that 60 degrees C is absolute max with 50 degrees being the average maximum operating temp. (i hope that makes sense)
3.Recently AMD has been "locking" the clock speeds on their CPUs. There are methods to "unlock" but you will have to do a little research.
