I have a 600MHz iBook dual USB (snow). I'm running OSX 10.3.9 with the iCook overclock. Anyway to be on the safe side I used some ArticSilver 5 on the CPU. Think this will cool the CPU better? Or should I invest in a cooling pad?

the arctic silver will probably allow better heat transmission from the processor to the heat sink, but it'll still give off more heat. With anything overclocked, more airflow is better, because what keeps the heat sink cool, helps. With that in mind, yeah, I'd go for the cooling pad too smile
