Ok, well that bit of information didn't really help, but thats fine.

First what you need to do is go to your bios:

1. Change your CPU Voltage / VCore to 1.450
2. Change your Memory Voltage to 2.7
3. Change the FSB or CPU Frequency to 205MHz (going up in incriments of 5MHz each time)
4. Make sure that the Multiplier for the CPU is 10x.
5. go to DRAM Configuration or somthing w/ Memory Configuration, and depending on your Memory you want to change the timings to 2.5-4-4-5.
6. F10 and Yes to save configuration

Just with that adjustment, you've overclocked your CPU from 2000MHz to 2050MHz. That is a very small overclock, to overclock further, follow step 2 each time.

P.S. Welcome to the Forums!!

Hi and WELCOME to the forum. You will find many "nice" OCers here
Please go to your Profile vis the USER CP @ top of page an fill in your sys specs! Knowing what you have will help us help you.

BTW... in addition to Lights info...
The RAM has a multiplyer which varys from 5, 4, 3 and 2 to help keep the RAM in check!
Default would us an "5X" or 5x200=1000MHz ... you want to keep @ or below 1000 so
4x will allow the HTT up to 250
3x will allow from an 251 to 333

Not sure what you mean with the PCI. But your PCI/AGP should be locked and remain at the same mhz. Pci 33mhz/ Agp 66mhz.
