Unless you got a lowwer voltage version 2100+ be very careful as even at stock settings they can get unstable. A friend had to put on a beefer fan & my 2100+ got clogged alittle & burned up. I had to move the FSB from 133 to 100 MHz (2100+ to a 1500+) & I still have a warm up freeze. I have a 2200+ coming won on ebay & is a 1.65 volt version. I almost got a 1.60 volt version, only I was not sure if my cheap MoBo could handle it. The MoBo was for a expanding LAN & never got put together & my good MoBo burned up, the voltage regulators cooked. So I got stuck with a cheap MoBo. The MoBo that burned up with the bad voltage regulator could be why my CPU bit the dust as it was in there when it blew. I would have turned in the retail CPU, but I removed the paste & used artic silver 2 & I am sure that ruins the warrenty.
So be careful as I am sure the XP's will become rare & pricey soon.
