    The P2-300's did not overclock very well. DO NOT ever try to run at 83 MHz FSB or you risk corrupting your hard drive files and reformatting and reloading your operating system.

    Your processor was made in 1998 (the first number in the first line is the year) and they were made the 5th week (the 05 right after the year digit).

    Personally, I would not waste my time mounting a peltier to the P2-300. You could get a new processor (such as a Celeron 500 and an adapter card) and get alot more performance.

    Anything is worth a shot in my book. I may even pull my old 486 out of the closest and see if I can't wring a WU a week out of her. It'll make her feel useful again
