New to all of this [SOLVED]

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello, I am completely new to the world of over clocking and just has a few general questions;

1. Is it safe to over clock my CPU with nothing but the stuck heatsink/fan for cooling?
2. Can I overclock my CPU while using Ubuntu 10.04?

I am pretty sure my BIOS doesn't support over clocking, these are my system specifications (All stock)

Motherboard:
MS-7525 (Boston)

Processor:
Intel Celeron 450 2.20GHz (Single Core)

Video:
Integrated graphics using Intel GMA 3100

Power Supply:
250W power supply

Sorry if it is to little, or to much information. Like I said I am completely new to this, any references to good books or other information about over clocking is appreciated. Thanks to everyone in advance!

1. I wouldn't recommend it. If you watch your temps you could get away with it. Use Core Temp or similar temp monitoring program.
2. While its running? I don't think so, but I'm not a Linux poweruser.

If your mobo doesn't support it, how are you going to do it? Lol

Well overclocking doesn't really depend on your OS, but since your motherboard BIOS doesn't seem to support overclocking, you might need software like SetFSB, which I don't think is worth trying, things might turn out bad. Not to hurt you, but to be honest, you won't gain much of a performance boost overclocking this CPU, rather switch to something better smile.gif

Well, I thought that some Motherboards allow you to overclock right in the BIOS? But isn't there other ways? Like I said I am very new to all of this, any recommendations for books or reference materials to get me started?

No hurting here, just learning xD, anyway thank you both I think I will probably go with your advice and get something better. Save up a bit do some research and build a rig for optimal performance and over clocking. Thanks again!
