Default CPU Limits?

What are the limits of an Athlon XP in terms of overclocking? I was thinking I would clock it with a 140 MHz bus with a 12.5 multiplier. But, any other suggestions? And if I did that, would I have to increase the voltage as well?

That's all good and dandy, but..my MAIN problem is choosing the right fan. I'm currently looking at a Volcano 9 but I'm really not sure. Could someone just TELL me what fan/heatsink to get?
