Experienced opinions please.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello all.

I am quite new to concept of overclocking. Although I have been building and maintaining my "Frankenputers" for years. It has been a love/hate relationship with the idea of getting the maximum in efficiency and raw power versus the manufacturers default settings. Plus the fear of turning my computer in to a horribly overpriced side table for my drinks was never that appealing. Until I started doing some "invasive" and "exploratory" surgery on my latest creation.

Recently I have been tinkering around and was wondering if anyone could make some suggestions on the hardware I have or point out errors due to my lack of complete understanding of what every last acronym stands for and the relationship between them. I would welcome the opinions of the experienced.

Thank you.

See attached text file please.

Well, your overclock only appears to be 145MHz over the stock, so you're going to see very little extra performance. The Athlon 635 isn't a great chip but I think you'll definately be able to squeeze some extra juice out of it.

This thread is old but is a great read if you're just getting into it.

Hope that helps!
