Overclocking is a time consuming process that often yields small results. Your processor isn't the only factor. Your RAM and motherboard play a key factor as well.
How many ghz can you get out of that CPU? .1? .2? maybe .5?

how far would you say i could go with a 2.8ghz 800fsb prescott chip w/ 1mb of LV2 cache?.. could i overclock the cache to say 1.4mb? or it that impossible???

And at the end of the day your not gonna see big improvements from going from 2.8Ghz to 3 or 3.2Ghz.
If you're gonna do it anyway you need to install something like motherboard manager (mbm) so you can keep an eye on the temperature. You also want to dig out your motherboard manual to find out how to clear your CMOS (resets your bios defaults) if you change something and it won't boot.
Chances are you've listened to some of these people and increased your FSB a few mhz, then your PC hasn't booted and your staring at a blank screen and I'm talking to myself...........

That said. I have never bought a stock PC and built all my systems i have had apart from my first. No i've never tried to overclock my CPU/RAM, no i am not buying my components so that they can handle overclocking and yes i 'will' be getting a stock HSF with my CPU.
I was only asking in curiosity and will not overclock my PC. Ok?

I wasn't talking to you for a start, I was talking to the guy that asked the original question, not the looser who asked if he could overclock his cache from 1mb to 1.4mb!! How do you hope to make more RAM by overclocking, it's a physical entity. I have real difficulty believing you've built anything that's turned on at the end.
I said 'no offence' because my post was meant to be helpful rather than offensive, because I find some people take offence at anything, as you've illustrated.

It's written from an Athlon/Tbred perspective but a lot of it applies to an Intel system.
oReo, punch a wall or something. You anti-"no offence" crusade is a bit ironic considering this post.
