it is palamino, and i oced by raising the bus, the ram is crap, and the mobm is VIA KT266/333
I still use a system like that as a media server and it's over clocked about 200Mhz – which by the way is pushing it for that type of processor w/ out some super cooling. XP chips just didn't OC well. I also have that exact board, and it was a very good board with plenty of options. If you are going above 200 then you need better cooling – simple as that. BTW, the temps you are reading (i think) are not the core temps just the surface of the processor (sensor beneath the cpu) which is incorrect. Add 5-20 degrees (depending on cooling method) which is putting you very close to max temps.
