Welcome to the Forum!

On the homepage, there is a set of guides to the right of the forum selection. Look for the AMD Overclocking guide, browse it, or study it, whatever the case: familiarize yourself with it.

With your board and processor, you can easily turn that processor into a "3200" by turning up some voltages, then applying more FSB.

Before you go and do that in your BIOS, what kind of ram is it? (PC2700, PC3200...etc)

And what kind of cooling do you have? Stock AMD heatsink/fan?

If you answered PC2700 and Stock cooling, you have some upgrades to do.

If you answered PC3200 and stock cooling, you may have some overclocking room.

If you answered PC3200 and a good aftermarket cooling, then you will be able to quickly adjust the settings to make your computer THAT much faster.

if possible, in bios set your fsb to 200 and change your MULTIPLIER to 11, even tho your RAM is max at 166, the processor should run at 2.2ghz, which is the equivalent to a XP 3200+

Im quite neu at this but i seem to get it right!

i have my fsb at 220 and multiplyer at 11.(2424 MHz) core voltage at 1.85 V. butt i have to run my ram at rated speed 165 MHz.(pc 2700).Thats about as far as it goes but try in smal steps at the FSB and find out how far to go whithout getting unstable!
