Thread Starter 
Thanks a bunch that was a nice tool =) pbasil1. Thanks for all the info as well Thumper..I looked around around and seen a Epox that will go along with my board setup now pretty much the same, but has been tested and a great board to use when OC'ing.

Just one final thing that no one has been able to answer is that I can't over clock my prossersor with the board I have now? before I spend the money is there any tool or program or a tech thing I can do to be able oc it? I mean Intel boards is ruff nut to crack lol. The Bios will not let me oc anything!

Well everyone I have my first OC =) which by now shows in my Sig. Now if I could get some help or not if its possiable to OC my prossesor with the chipset for my board? How do i unlock the bios to let me make chages? I'm thinking there has to be a software way or a tech way around it.

If not I have my eye on a mobo it's a Epox 945 chipset and runs around $176 dollars is this a good board and a good price? I'm still hoping I can oc mine before spending money..Thanks

Ok the low down with all i have gathered and the help of everyone that posted. Of course I have OC'ed my Video Card /w the help of pbasil1 =) Thanks again. It's running stable and see a major diffrence.

Now the problem with OC'ing my prossesor since I have talked to everyone I'm just going out and buying a new mobo to make things easy. I want to go through the Bios to OC anything else is bad lol. Here is everything I'm getting to get my OC project done and would like your thoughts.

Mobo:
Asus 915p /ich6r4ddr/ddr2pciex16 Supports both ddr and ddr2 with 1 pci express slot for my Radeon.
Heatsink:
Thermaltake Jungle 512 92mm copper core silent
Power supply:
Glacier 500w Top vent so it does not hit your prossesor area

These where all in price range that I can spend and would love comments. I will be getting the stuff to do this in a week. Thanks

Welcome to the site, I would start with a better mother board, Cooling I would use a typhoon with as5 thermal compound, never heard of that power supply before, but get a name brand at least 450watt, but the important thing about power supplys are your 12volt amps which should be a min. of 25amps, that should get you started good then you can work on other things once you get these in order, better ram is always a plus.
