What have you tried yet? Have you entered into bios to look around? You need to get familiar with your bios settings and make some small adjustments torward oc'ing. Try raising your fsb in small increments, check stability, then do it again. We can't lead you through every step, you have to jus try it.

ya iv looked around but im just not sure exactly what do to.
my cpus fbs is 133 and my ram is set to 400.
ive tried uping it for my cpu by like 5 or so but iv never actualy saved it cuz i get a red message telling me if i do somehting wrong (im @ skewl right now so im not possitive) with my ram ill mess it up, and its my only comp so i dont want that.
it also automaticly changes my ram fsb, is this norm?
and do i have enough power with a 450W?

You are fine with the powersupply. Go ahead and raise the fsb small amounts. If it locks, you can clear the cmos and start over. You will probably have to open the advanced settings in bios(ctrl+F1) and change your divider from auto to 2.0.
