See mods, I told you more peope are posting about overclocking.

Anyways, overclocking isn't a sure thing, different people get different results even if they run an identical set up. But if you want the best overclock you should go for one of those refrigirator cases, I forgot the proper name, lol, it'll run you about $700. Thats the best cooling solution. But you can always go for a water cooling, fan cooling, or heat pipe cooling. To achieve optimal overclocks, you should have good ram, good PSU, and a good mobo.

First check the type of core u have....palomino or thoroughbred a or b.

then...you need to unlock it...and then change multipliers and fsb thru bios....unless your motherboard runs on dip switches.

also...cooling, dont overclock with the stock heatsink and fan that is included with your amd cpu's...those suck bad.....get something that is good.

The cases that ps2wiz is talking about are vapochill i believe, but these are serious pieces of kit, i.e very expensive and if you mess it up it can be even more expensive.

Completely agree with Badidoh. If you're overclocking using fans i'd first get yourself some artic silver 3 and then a good fan.

On the topic of water cooling you can make a DIY system or buy bits and pieces, basically you'll need a waterbloack for the CPU, a reservoir, a pump, radiator and tubes. There are lots of kits available i'm currently looking at getting [url=www.wetandchillychips.co.uk]This kit except i will be getting the copper heatsink and dual radiator. I will probably get a GPU waterblock and there are also blocks available for the northbridge of motherboards as well.

The best thing i can recommend is finding as many sites as possible and doing lots of research. HTH
