Getting started OC'g my AMD64 3200+

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've used information on this site many times to help me know what MB and cpu to buy. Now that I have built the thing I'm confused on getting started. There are options to increase the voltage to the cpu and to the graphics card. I also noticed in my bios that the fsb is only set on 200 and the MB can be pushed to 456Mhz. Looking at my specs below I would appreciate some direction. Thanks...

PS. I built this thing to play Battlefield 2 online.

I would explain how to OC but this guide has it all covered, if you need any assistance though PM me or use AIM.

EDIT : Also I think its a little out dated, it says about PCI speeds in the one part, there will be a place you can lock your PCI speeds in your BIOS- find that before you start changing the FSB etc.

First off make sure your pci/apg are locked, then set your htt to 4x, make sur cool & quiet are disabled, the same with spread spectrem. then up your fsb untell it won't boot to windows, then back it off and run prime95 and memtest. if it passes with no error, then you can proceed for more, but now you will have to increase the vcore one notch, and upping the fsb, as for ram voltage, set it to 2.8 or 2.9volts. keep an eye on the temps don't let them get past 50c under load. this is just a small start. hope it helps.
