Default How to overclock CPU?


I am interested in learning how to overclock my CPU a bit. I have a
AMD 2500 Barton CPU and an ABIT NF7s nForce2 Mobo.

If you have a link to a decent site on how I can learn how to
overclock my CPU a tad I'd be very grateful. I think my CPU is about
1.8Ghz, and I'd just like to overclock to over 2Ghz. As much as I can
without having stability or cooling problems.

I don't think I would be able to overclock my system too much because
the cooling wouldn't be good enough. If I don't have the fan on full
blast the CPU heats up too much and the alarm sounds. Also, I often
run a lot of applications at the same time.

Speaking of alarms, I just wondered if it is possible to de-activate
the warning alarm for the CPU temp without having to reboot the whole
system? This is always something that has bugged me especially in the
middle of an online gaming session.

Thanks for any help with all these questions.
