Hey everyone, Im very new to overclocking, I have an AMD Opteron 146 (skt 939) which is stock at 2.0ghz with a 10x multiplier. I have an Asus A8N-SLI motherboard, and a Thermaltake Big Typhoon cpu cooler with very good airflow in my case. I have some generic PC3200 DDR400 sticks (4 x 512) Running at 2.5cl in dual channel mode right now, and have been able to up my FSB to 240 (while not changing anything else like voltage or memory speeds) and its running stable but wont go any higher... I would like to get atleast a 260FSB or even 280FSB if possible, and I think I need new memory to do it. So my question is what speed memory should I buy? All i want to do is up the FSB and thats it... if i have to change voltage thats fine but i dont want to lower anything to get a higher fsb, that doesnt seem to make sense, I just want the FSB to be 260 or 280 so my processor will run at 2.6ghz or 2.8ghz. I am so lost as to which memory to buy to do this, pc3200 or pc4000. Also need help in what I should change cpu voltage to, if I should change chipset voltage, what the heck a memory divider is, what i should put the hyper transport at, etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!
