going to overclock.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
hi there. i am going to overclock my pc because my brother beat the crap out of my uber 64bit pc. so i found this sitting in my garage so i thought id mess with it. This is pretty much copied from CPUZ and pated here. i made some error corrections and got rid of extra info.

now, i tried overclocking my old computer but it didnt work at all even 100mhz over. it was a board that wasnt very good at overclocking. i have read a little about the an35n and it seems to do ok so im going to give it another try. what do you think i need to change to make this go faster? how far do you think i can push the ram?

thanks for reading, any suggestions are welcome.

thats a reasonably decent system! Get a good cooler on that and then you should be able to bump it up a few 100 MHz. Also coz your using an old Socket A Athlon XP you can unlock the Multiplier by shorting out the L1 bridges on the CPU then you don't need to worry about RAM dividers and such!
