First of all, overclocking will void your warranty
So if you fry something, it's your problem.
On your mobo, all CPUs are locked to begin with, but the older Durons(model 3/7) and Athlon T-birds(model 4) can be easily unlocked by doing the good 'ole 'pencil-trick' - i.e. connect all the L1-bridges on the CPU with a pencil....like this: (before) L1 :::: -> (after) L1 IIII
This modification will enable you to choose whatever multiplier you like(as long as it is supported by the mobo), so you could OC your 1.1GHz Duron to 1.3GHz for example by selecting a x13.0 multiplier instead of its default x11.0 multi.
Raising the FSB while lowering the multiplier will get you better performance than just raising the multiplier, but you prolly won't even get a 133MHz FSB with your PC100 SDRAM QUOTE
whats difference between athlon 1400 and 1400xp?
There is no (desktop-) Athlon XP 1400+.
The Athlon XP-line(starting with the AXP 1500+ at clocked at 1.33GHz) has the newer Palomino-core(model 6) which is more efficient than the older Thunderbird-core(model 4) of the Athlons(non-XP), hence the Quantispeed-rating - a '1500+'-rating means an Athlon XP 1500+(1.33GHz) performs equal to an imaginary Athlon T-Bird clocked at 1.5GHz.
With the higher-clocked Athlon XPs and the transition to a 0.13µ process, the Thoroughbred(model 8), Thorton(model 10 with 256KB L2-cache) and Barton(model 10)-cores were introduced. If you buy a new Athlon XP right now, it will be a model 8 or 10.QUOTE
whats the max speed for this socket a board can i go to athlon 2000?
According to Asus' CPU-Support list
' ">http://www.asus.com/support/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx, the fastest CPU for your motherboard would be an Athlon XP 2100+(Palomino, model 6) which is supported as of PCB-revision 1.05.
Your PCB-rev should be printed somewhere on the mobo or on a sticker attached to it(usually on the PCI-slots or AGP-slot).
If you have a previous(<1.05) PCB-rev, the max for you will be a 1.4GHz Athlon T-Bird 'C'(133/266MHz FSB)
