You can't increase the cache by overclocking it. Overclocking affects the speed. Not the physical size of things.
Overclocking basically consists of raising the processor speed and the ram speed.
Your processor speed is determined by the Front Side Bus x the multiplier. (In my case for my Barton 2600+ my stock settings are 166x11.5)
On an unlocked CPU you can change the mutiplier, and that changes the CPU speed and nothing else. If you raise the Front Side Bus, you are then raising how fast the RAM, CPU, and other things can communicate data. Alot of people like to raise the FSB and lower the multiplier to get the same clockspeed as their stock settings, but the RAM runs much faster that way. (IE: I could put my FSB at 200x9.5 and still have the same clockspeed as stock settings (1.9ghz) but my ram would run at full speed now. (I have OCZ PC3200 RAM))
Anyway, download Motherboard Monitor 5 from here: http://downloads.gur...oad.php?det=204
Install it and make sure you follow all the instructions. Post your CPU temperature here and yeah. If it's above 50C you probably will want a new heatsink/fan before trying to OC. If around 40C, your pretty good. If around 30C, your perfect.
