Overclocking Intel Celron M 520

Hello, well I managed to over clock my processor, Intel Celron M 520, in my curent laptop which is a Acer Aspire 3680. Now my question is: is it safe to try and get to the 2.00Ghz mark. Curently it is overclocked to 1898.7 MHz.
Here are the temps:
Idle----------------------69C
normal use---------------74C
high use-----------------87C
exteme(SETI@HOME)-----98C

forgot to mention the default clock speed was 1.6GHz
now what do you guys think?

Max operating temp for that processor is 100C. You are pretty close to that at stress times. I wouldnt be surprised if the lappy is shutting down randomly even at the current clock speed, if running at high perf all the time.

You can give 2.0ghz a shot, but I dont think you can run that in a sustainable or practically useful way, unless you use the comp for light use only.

and do you really want your fan to run at 100% all the time?

enjoy your extra hertz, but don't crank it up any more.

i've got my 3gig processor running at 4 - i'm pretty sure it can go quite a bit higher, but i'm happy as i am with a quiet-running and ultra-stable machine.

plus you'll never notice the difference between 1.9 and 2 - what's that, 5%?

that last 5% may well do harm, but you won't notice 5% benefit.

You're going to melt your CPU into your motherboard doing that....

If you do, post pictures!

Yes, please do. A picture is worth a thousand words, so the next time someone asks if they should overclock their laptop, all we'll have to do is link to this page.

okay ill try to remember that but so far its running "okay" somewhat hot, but I was going to throw it out when my new laptop gets here so I decided to try and squeez a litle but more juice out of it. ohh and I did some testing. when i have my processor at default 1.6 GHz it still heats up to 94C when running prolonged processor intensive apps. for example SETI@HOME
