Looking to tweak & overclock my P3

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Was wondering is it possible and even worth it. I think I remember someone telling me it couldn't be done because I have a 'coppermine' p3. Just wanted to be sure. Thank you.

Well there is a switch in back to change it from 115 to 230. I'm not sure that will turn up the power into the system though. How would I got about oc'in because there is nothing in my bios for overclocking anything.

NO! never touch that switch unless you are in another country. that switch is there because in europe they use a higher voltage than in the US.

with a computer that old i would be looking for jumpers or dip switches on the motherboard. i don't think that PSU will be that bad because that isn't exactly a power hungry system. look around for the manual for your motherboard and if you don't have it at home then look on the manufactorers website.

First out we want the real specs on the PSU... it should have a sticker on the side, what does it say there?
