I have moved your thread to the AMD general section. The Essentials section is reserved for guides. We need to know what speed your memory is so that we can have an idea of what FSB you can hit. CPU speed = Front side bus x multiplier. So you want to overclock your FSB to the highest your mobo and memory can do, then find the right multiplier setting to get your max CPU speed. Sometimes you can reach a high FSB around 200mhz and need to lower your multiplier, other times you can raise it in order to get a higher CPU clock speed if you can't hit that high of a FSB.

Read this!!

Also, your CPU may be locked and not allow you to change your multiplier.

I did push my 2800 upto 170x12.5=2125.
I wouldn't push it any further because I only have DDR333 memory.

Although it was stable and ran at 57c under 100% load.

Thats with a Tt Volcano 7+ which is quite noisy.


.... and I've just seen a guy on TV get served over 600grams of parmesan cheese on his pasta!!!!

Read the link that I posted in my first reply. That will get you started. Also, you never mentioned what SPEED your ram was. For example: PC3200, PC2700, PC2100, etc. Or just the clock speed the RAM is suppose to run at, DDR400, DDR333, DDR266, etc.

You overclock by entering your BIOS settings by hitting the delete key when you first boot up your comp. Just keep tapping the delete key right after you power on. You will see a screen w/ some catagories. The categories and settings of you BIOS just depend on your mobo. So read your mobo's manuel to figure out what setting does what, and where to find each setting. Then go through and look at your different settings to get familiar w/ them. The guide which can be found by the link I posted goes through everything step by step. Read it! But basically... just get to started right away w/ out doing things the "right" way, look through your BIOS for a setting called CPU or motherboard frequency, CPU FSB, or something to that effect. You want to increase this setting by about 10mhz, reboot, then test windows to see if it works ok. If it does work, up it 10 more mhz and try again. You might also have the option "CPU speed". You want that to be set to user defined or manual. You need this set to user defined or manual in order to change your CPU's FSB. If your CPU's multiplier is not locked, you can change it to help find the best speed. I don't really see a point in going through everything because it's already been writen in the overclocking guide. Again, read it. AFTER you READ IT, then you can ask some specific questions, instead of... "How can I change this number?" If you don't like reading it, then don't overclock.

and the delet key is not the "backspace" key its the "Del" which is on the numpad inbetween 0 and enter

Wow... i've always used the delete key to the left of the "End" key. Crazy... it has worked on 4 different mobos at least.
