Spam the Delete Key when you boot up your computer.

Or whatever key it asks for "SETUP" or "BIOS" or something along that line.

Once in there, if you can find something about CPU frequency or Multiplier or something like that, then you're in luck and you can overclock by changing those settings.

Otherwise, you are pretty much out of luck.

i checked the bios..it only has the option for changing the frequency ..n nuthin else!...especially multiplier n stuff..also the ram overclocking settings....can i use any software to do the OC!!

just done a quick google for kobian pig31t motherboard.
i cant find anything.

forget about the multi.

this is a very basic explanation of overclocking

can you raise the fsb? yours is now 200. (200 x 6 = 1200 or 1.2GHz) try rising it to 220
boot into windows
download realtemp and coretemp (google them)
install and run them
then download intel burn test (ibt) and run it.
have a look in task manager and notice how much free ram is listed.

in ibt set threads to 2 (for 2 cores) and then click on custom ram and enter an amount just below the free amount.
eg. i have 2520mb free ram. so i enter 2500 into the custom ram.
run the test for 5 passes.
keep an eye on temps (do not let it go over 65.c)

if test runs fine, go back into bios, and change frequency (fsb) to 240 and repeat the tests.
keep doing this until windows will not boot. then just go back a step (remove 20 from the fsb) to the last stable frequency.

the trick is to do this step by step, and not go straight to eg. 260, just take your time

as that is a generic mobo, your overclocking options will be limited.

get the cpu maxed before increasing the ram speed

also can you raise any voltages?

Hey j.col...really appreciate the help....yeah u got it...overclocking...especially modifying the ram settings n voltage settings is mostly not possible right now...i'm facing a lot'of problems because of my f###ed up mobo !! Installed speed fan...cudn't control the fan speeds because of my mobo i guess..major incompatibility!
Can u suggest a good software that could control the overclockin or at least fan speeds?? My bios just has the option to increse cpu freq...like u said 200mhz..to 220 mhz or sumthin...but thats the only option....
Would appreciate any help !!
Peace !

to monitor fan speed and temps i use hwmonitor pro but you cant change the fan speed your best bet is either by a fan controller, let the bios set the fan speed or see if there is some official software from your mb manufactor

what sort of pc do you have: Custom built or bought it from a manufactor packard bell? acer? Sony? ect..

if its custom built what heatsink/cooling do you have you usually cannot overclock if it is a pc made by a manufactor

Cheers.

First thing i would recommed is that you by a new cpu cooler the intel one is not that good but while you are learning just take small steps and keep an eye on your temps.

Can you add you PC Specs to your Sig please it will help us allot.

Your processor is suppose to be very good at overclocking

Best thing i can say is google your processor and overclocking it and it comes with alot of people who have oc it.

When you up FSB speed if it doesnt come on take the bios battery out and up the vcore if it does run intel burn test to see if it is stable if it isnt stable then up the vcore or change some settings to try and make it stable

I agree,

although I've had great success overclocking my E2180 with the stock cooler, you can get to about 2.8-3.0Ghz easy without a new cpu cooler, and with out changing the vcore.

Here is mine currently at 2.6 Ghz, at about 90% load for about 5 minuets
