Sometimes one just has to push the envelope - reasoning isn't always a consideration. Having said that, its pretty obvious you've been warned and for good reason. I've got a SanDiego 4000+ in one of my boxes and it OC's OK, but after an initial test drive, its been throttled back close to its original specs and is running 2.5GHZ on an ABIT Fatal1ty board. You can fairly easily bump your FSB speed but you'll need good memory and a little tweaking in terms of core voltage to really push this puppy and thats where the caution flags go up. As has been suggested, you should do a lot more reading before you start playing around. One has to be very cognizant of temperatures and unlike some, I'd never overclock this or any other CPU with a stock heatsink.
As has also been stated, you're not going to notice much difference because you've already got a very fast CPU. Benchmarking will show a quantifiable difference in speed, but absent a quest for pure numbers, its doubtful that you will be able to detect any operational differences whatsoever. Some wise individuals have already warned you against this, but if you must - be careful and go slow. Overclocking is absolutely worthless unless one can acheive rock solid stability within a tolerable temperature range. edit after re-read Do a lot more reading before you start messing around.
