How do I overclock?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I've just read the thread with the basic overclocking. I don't know where to start. It says I need to go to the menu with the CPU frequency but I don't know what it is. View the attachments for my bios.







Thanks for the help.

I can change it to manual. And then I can switch the 200 mhz.

well there you go, switch it and start increasing 2-3mhz at a time. I also think there are some advanced settings in there for your memory and such. Have you tried ctrl and f1.

That's where you'll want to start then. You'll eventually need to fiddle with voltages and RAM timings as described in the Intel overclocking guide as well.

ctrl and F1 don't work.
Any other keys?

Do you know a good program to see youre temperature and a good one to test for instabillity?

I've been reading and talking with friends on overclocking PCs and it seems that the only way to overclock intel CPUs is to change jumpers on the motherbord itself. For this you need to look in your motherbords manual. What you can do is change your clockspeed one setting higher. I recommand overclocking the bus speed because, unlike AMD CPUs witch have a max bus speed of 2Ghz, they have a bus speed of only 800Mhz wich means that your RAM, 3D card, and other stuff can't pass 800Mhz. So for example getting more than 2 x 1024Mb of pc3200 400Mhz RAM wont be faster since its blocked by the bus speed. That why with gaming pcs I recommand AMD CPUs. Plus their easy to overclock, your can overclock in BIOS easily. Intel are locked by the jumpers on the motherboard.

about the temperature you can download motherboard monitor 5 aka MBM 5
and\\or Everest , for benchmarking and stability : Sisoft Sandra and Prime 95
sorry for not including links but if you google the names it should be really easy to find them also there should be a inhouse faq with the links of all good freeware prog's around

you can disregard 99% of the above quoted material. He is referring to older (way older) intel procs.
Have you up'd the fsb over 200 yet? what happened. I think you need to read more FAQ's here because alot of the questions you have asked are easily accessable here in the faq's. the benchmark and stability tests are available in the "Benchmarking and overclocking software" section.

Yeah I upped it to 212. Now running @ 3172 mhz.

Any Idea how long you could do with a oc'd processor? I also changed the stock cooler with the arctic freezer7 cooler. Is this a good one?
