Firstly... My BIOS is ***ed up... I do not have the conventional options... Please see the link i posted in a previous comment.

Second... My processor is not black edition, i cannot up the multiplier, i have to up the fsb.

I have recently (5 mins ago) tried upping the FSB with 1 MHz... Either my mobo is one of the cheapest pieces of **** in this world, or there's something i've missed, because just by raising the FSB with 1 causes my system to get buggy, not even POSTing. My computer is now running with 221 but i restarted several times and rearranged my USB devices to get it started I will try doing what you said (Rasiing the voltage) and see what happens.

Thanks for the help
Yeah, sorry if you don't have all the settings needed to get a little more speed out of the system. You just have an older setup from a time when overclocking options were reserved for enthusiast's boards, not the general public. Nowadays it is hard to find any quality board without at least some simple one-step overclocking options and enough tweaks to take it a bit further.

It really looks like you are very overdue for a whole system upgrade. When you are ready we will be here to help you pick just the right parts.

Good luck and happy New Year.

Appreciate the help

Ill try to fool a little around, and see if i can get it to work This said, i managed to up the speed to 2,4 MHz, why on earth wouldn't i get higher gaming performance? Does it have something to do with my ram, the HT link, or something else which is being overclocked? *

Nice BC2 stats btw

Gaming performance is largely dependent on having a faster GPU and more/faster graphical memory because the majority of the 3D textures, polygons, etc, are rendered on your graphics card, not using your system's main memory and processor.

What i'm saying is.... That even if graphics cards has alot of influence on gaming, it makes no sense that my gaming performance should decrease when upping my CPU speed, cus i have done nothing to my GPU

What about your CPU temps? If the chip is seriously overheating it will start to skip clock cycles (throttling), so you get decrease in performance.

You know for $44 you could easily triple your gaming performance on your machine, right?

The GT240 requires no additional power - and it performs on par with the 9800GT on this chart:

most 4200+ on any board should do 2.6Ghz+ without the need to raise vcore much at all. 1.375 for 2.6Ghz is a little much IMO. I had a 4200+ at 275x11 (3025Mhz) running stable with stock volts. Also a second 4200+ in another rig running at 250x11 (2750Mhz) with LESS than stock volts... the G2 revisions especially need less voltage. just my 2 cents

Nothing to worry about on the temps side...

Thanks for the information dude It just seems that my Motherboard is a pieve of ****!!! I think it has an FSB wall of 220 or something, because i can't seem to raise it higher than that... even when raising the voltage higher than stock, it just won't work... I used around 20 minutes just restarting and rearranging my USB devices after raising it to 221... -.-

I think you are mistaken bro about what chip you are saying you had. 3.0GHz is the absolute maximum I have ever seen a 4200+ on anything but water or extreme cooling. And those speeds for the 4200+ used to require 1.5 to 1.6v. easily. You better go back and check before throwing out some numbers that are off the charts for his setup.

He needs to drop a few dollars and he said he is not willing to do that. If he wants to play extremely demanding games he needs to do better than a little overclock on a 6 year old processor.
