I am very new to overclocking and have heard that there are some windows programs you can download to overclock your system for you?

Can anybody recommend a good one? Thanks!!!

I agree with Stallion.
Software OCing = Crap
You will get almost nowhere with software based stuff, AND you will have to re-OC every time you load windows.

Well, you both confirmed it for me. I have heard that as well, but thought it was worth checking into.

I am so new to this im not sure what settings to work with, at least to start. I know tweaking the FSB is the way to do it, but even when i tweak it up by 3 it wont post. Any other recommendations? Thanks to both of you!

ya, your bios would be the best place...also you can try speedfan...but your bios is the best place...you have a rockin mobo and proc dude!!!

is your ram pc 4000 or ddr400...cause pc400 makes no sense

if you set your ram timings to auto, and you push the fsb up (make sure to lock your agp/pci frequency), set your voltage to increase automatically, you'll start to OC...make sure you have a good cooler (big typhoon or xp120) that can handle the increased voltage and frequency

Its Corsair Pro DDR PC4000 if that makes sense?

Since you have the same CPU type as me Tomasro, would you mind giving me a rundown of what settings to tweak and what a reasonable overclock level for me to reach would be?

That woudl really help! Thanks so much!

My addvice is to start small, ditch the software idea and go strait to the bios, it is by far your best bet when it comes to overclocking. Id also recomend reading and re-reading the (How To) at the top of this sub-forum. Start with small bumps, and work you way up, if your system is not posting with small increase's something is setup wrong in your bios, or your PSU simply cant handle anymore. But Im sure its just that your new at it and something is tweeked wrong. If needs be write down your steps just incase something goes wrong and start from there again. It will take some time to get a feal for it, but once you do, youll be helping others just liek we are trying to help you. Just keep us posted on your progress, and good luck. Any questions you might have can be answered here within minutes.

Thanks for all the tips folks!

Here is my new dilema!

I actually got my system to overclock last night. I took some advice and "fixed the Ram settings". Then I got my FSB up to 210 and upped my PSU vltg to 1.575 and had no problems posting. Then when I got the FSB to 220 the machine wouldnt boot. It just sits on the screen which shows the P4 Intel logo and below says "hit del for bios". Well, hitting del doesnt work. It is just stuck on this screen.

So then I tried clearing the CMOS per Abit's manual instructions. I powered down, disconnected the power supply, disconnected the 5v reserve power battery, moved the CMOS jumber to the clear setting, waited several minutes for the CMOS to discharge. Then I moved the CMOS jumper back to the default setting, replaced the 5v battery, reconnected the power supply and powered it back up. Still locked at that screen!

Can anybody help? I worked on this for hours last night and am very frustrated. Thanks!!!
