Default What are the problems with overclocking?

I want to know what problems there are with overclocking. The main problem seems to be CPU overheating.
I have a Intel Celeron 1.7GHZ (which apparently overclock well)with the original fan on an MSI MS-6524 motherboard. I dont have a system fan so can i overclock?

I'll start off in saying that I will not honor the warranty if some overclock their PCs.

There is the risk of the following :-
* Unstable system due to over heating
* The expected life span of the motherboard / cpu are reduce.
* Fried CPU and other componants.
* Voided Warranty

Yeah... Like buying a water cooling system just so you can over clock. Now that is laughible IMHO. You might as well by a faster CPU instead with that finacial out lay.

overclocking is worth it =/ i had my 2500 running at 2.367Ghz, for the price of 90 bucks it was running faster than a chip that costs over 200 bucks, and was stable and cool (Volcano12)

just make sure you get a very good heatsing fan combo for your cpu and do the best you can for cooling the rest of the case you should be all right. just dont try to go to high with your overclocking.

How far do you think it is possible to overclock a AMD Athlon XP2500+ 1.83GHz (Barton) 333fsb using only fan cooling?

What is an acceptable temperature for this CPU?
