Wrong forum.


Try removing some desktop icons, Removing your wallpaper and defragging your harddrive. I think what you "feel" is just a "feeling" I guess we all think everything's going to be lightning fast when we make such a kick ass new comp (Such as yours) that it'll boot in no time flat and when it doesn't we're all like ***? Time how long it takes to boot up after you do things I told you to


To overclock basically you have a multiplier and a front side bus *FSB for short* Basically increase your FSB. Others can elaborate as that board you have is more "pro overclocker" so theres a lot of minor settings and adjustments the pros will have to help you with.
