Help with overclock

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am new to this forum and overclocking and wanted to know where to start. There are so many threads for this and that and I feel overwhelmed by all the info. Sorry if I am not posting this in the right area. I am looking into overclocking my Sempron LE-1250 2.2GHz cpu. I used the search but I wanted to be able to discuss it with someone. I am a learn myself type of guy as I built the computer I am using but I never ventured into overclocking until now. Where should I start? What kind of speeds should I expect out of such a low end cpu?

Thanks in advance,
My System

Welcome to OCN then!

Are you familiar with BIOS, base clock, Front-side-bus, Hypertransport, and such things?

Thanks Matroska! I am familiar with BIOS but none of the others you mentioned. I am reading through some of the guides now about overclocking so I can understand some of the terms.
