how to overclock???

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
o.k. so i have been on this site for a few days and i've learned a lot for the amount of time spent on the oc issue, however, i am still a little hesitant to do anything because i am afraid i might screw something up. in an earlier post i was told to set my divider to 166, and my htt to 4x, among other things but the problem is that (1) i don't exactly know what all that means and (2) i don't know where it is that i do that...therefore i am in need of some explanation, it would be kind is someone took me through that

btw, i got some info about my cpu and stuff...

You could have just edited your original post and added the pictures in rather than making another post but never mind.
Overclocking is done in BIOS (Basic Input Output System), you simply raise frequencies up and up whilst running tests such as..er example.. prime95, this shows your temps on full load! you can find your idle CPU load in the bios itself.
You overclock to a certain degree whilst keeping the temperature from going to high, because then it would logically melt lol!

HERE is a list of many introductions and I'm sure you will find what your looking for here since there are so many introductions!
Good luck

i'm beginning to think that it is my motherboard that won't allow any overclocking, is that a possibility

yes, much like the one i am using now, E Machines, i can't overclock anything at all on it unlike a custom made computer! sorry

in your BIOS you need to check out the "advanced" tab and see if there is anything in there that will let you change the cpu frequency or multiplier.......most mobo are able to change the RAM but you cant overclock if you cant change the cpu...


If there is nothing there you might want to look at Windows based overclocking....it is nowhere near as good but if you have no other options then try Clockgen.

but check your BIOS first....

perhaps google your mobo model and see if anyone else has posted anything about overclocking it.

well i custom built my computer and when i checked the bios, the cpu frequency was written in gray, i checked the manual and it said it is read-only

is there any way around that?

To my knowledge no. Although there are some options that may enable you to unlock that feature. Re-read your manual, and do a little tinking around with your bios, you should find something.
BTW you don't edit the CPU frequency you edit the FSB. So look for something like that.
