Yeah, in another forums (infact this arguement got me a warning back at 600 posts lol ) but yeah some guy said "no way an XP chip will get up to 3ghz" but on this other forum site I visited there's a sticky "Post your Mobile OC's here" and he had a CPU-Z screenshot of his rig at 3.0GHz BUT, he was using Watercooling not air though, so as far as the record on air I'm not sure...
Well according to nubius the heat wasn't the factor...
It wasn't, my CPU would stay in the 30's Celsius even with 2.225 Vcore, the computer overall and motherboard didn't want to handle those voltages though because while in the BIOS trying to reset my settings and lower from 2.225 it shutdown and I got an error sound I hadn't heard before and I know my PC was nowhere near the shutoff temp of 50C at the time...
Soooo it comes down to simply the processor can't handle it, which it seems mine requires quite a bit of voltage on speeds I've seen other people have with the same setup get with less voltage especially like in 4W4K3's case, and even Leonidas has like 2.4GHz at 1.65 whereas I think mine would require 1.725
So yeah, really I don't know, probably motherboard, a little bit of that not wanting 2.225 Vcore
a little bit of the chip not wanting it, and overall I still don't think 2.225 woulda been able to get 2.8GHz to run without freezing the computer, but I'm not sure, like I said it still froze at 2.15
EDIT: BTW I'd link to that guys screenshot, but you gotta sign up for the forums since it's in a thread sooo yeah =/

although I found the people to be extremely arrogant, rude, impatient, and a bunch of 'know-it-alls' hence why I still reside here at TF and not over there
Anywho, go into their Forums, then AMD Section, then AMD PROCESSORS, and you can see it in the sticky that says "POST ALL MOBILE OC'S HERE" the guys like on page 3 or 4
