This is a slight 400mhz overclock but the performance boost is nice and you can see the difference and more importantly i've never seen this setting fail. To me a 2500+ is not a 1.83ghz CPU but rather a 2.2ghz
I don't know your level of knowledge, if what i'm saying sounds like arabic then just press DEL when your computer boot and look at the options, you should see what i'm talking about.
Also, please fill in your complete System Specs in your User CP that'll help us to help you better. (cooling, ram brand/model, psu etc..)
thanks! I had someone else do it for me, so I am not sure.... it was running at 2.2ghz before, so I think you are on to something... I need some step by step, all of this is chinese to me. I know how to get to the settings and all that and know my way around, just dont know d about overclocking or how to change the front side buss, v core voltage and all that... sorry, i am retarted. anyway, the ram is pc 3200 corsair, would have to pull it to get the model.... its good stuff i know. i think my powersupply is suspect and will be replacing that as well as the graphics card. if you know where to go for step by step instructions, i would be forever grateful!... cooling is not an issue,,, got round ide cables and thermal take fans out the wazoo... in fact the darn thing sounds like it will hover when they are all turned up... i have never had a cooling problem,,, just my wife complaining about the noise!
