Can anybody help?

I've had a quick look at the intel site for this board - and it's manual didn't look promising. I did find a document on the BIOS menus here, which seems to suggest you can overclock the FSB under the performance menu. There should also be a memory overrides, and Processor overrides menu, which can let you play around with the multipliers and voltages.

I would try and find the processor multipliers first, and raise them till its unstable, then back off a bit. It looks like you have two multipliers to set, turbo and non-turbo - which means your processor might accelerate cores when not all of them are used.

note i've no actual experience with this board/processor. I'm just throwing you some suggestions from what I can find from the intel site. smile.gif

eh..you could use setfsb..see if there's a place in bios to raise vcore...(core voltage)If not..you could still go up 20mhz on the fsb,netting 300 mhz core clock.

Oh dear! If you don't have those settings, then I think your options are quite limited. You could update your BIOS if you don't have the latest version (which is 0437, found HERE). I read the release notes of the BIOS update, and it seems to suggest the BIOS automatically controls the Vcore voltage depending on the FSB and Multiplier settings for the CPU. If you could find the CPU FSB and Multiplier settings, that would be the place to start overclocking.

Failing that, I'm afraid you'd be best with a new motherboard, more suited to overclocking. I know some models of Motherboard can have REALLY restrictive options which prevent you from changing from standard settings. smile.gif

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

nononono..I don't recommend you go flashing your BIOS..download setfsb..
Your stuff is so old..you may have to go floppy..you're not ready for all that..

If you download the EXE (I think it's the 4th option - it should do it automatically. But it is important that the machine is not turned off while it is doing the update, or it can kill your machine. If you don't feel confident doing it, I wouldn't do it. The process has it's risks. If you click the Read Me on the page, it'll tell you about the process.

As Schmuckley says though, SetFSB may be a safer way for you to try and overclock your board. It sets it in software, so it can be undone if things go wrong. Here is a Link to a webpage of someone who has had success overclocking this board with SetFSB. It'll be important to choose the same clock generator that they used for it to work. smile.gif

I wouldn't do the BIOS yet, and flashing out of windows is usually destined to fail - certainly i'd do some reading before attempting it smile.gif
