First Time Overclocking (need help plz)!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, this is my first time learning/trying to overclock my CPU.

I'm trying to overclock Pentium D 920 2.8ghz. Motherboard Abit fatality nForce 560i. I don't really know how to overclock or not at all. I've went throught the CPU overclocking guide from xbit. It didn't really help any. CPU temp 40-45 C. SYS temp 34-35 C. PWM temp 43C.

I got it from 2.8ghz to 3.48 by changing the FSB from 800 to 995 and that was all I changed. the multiplier is x16 (133).<- I don't really know what it does just set to that number for no reason. So I thought by pumping up the speed is just to change the FSB, but I can't go pass 995.(It won't load the windows if I go more).

O nvm, the part where i said mulitplier is x16(133). It was the PCie x16 lol. I'm sucha noob.

I read the link, i'm still not sure what it means. But I went through the part where they talk about CPU and ram. Does it mean I need more ram to get higher overclocking or/and ram fans?

does overclocking has stuff todo with memory speed? like the more speed on your ram the more you can overclock?
