I need help to start overclocking, but don't know where to start. My specs:

XFX nForce 680i LT SLI Motherboard
Intel Pentium E2180 2.0 GHz (800MHz FSB, Dual Core)
2 GB of Corsair RAM
XFX Gforce 8600gt Video Card
Vista :)swearing
32 bit
Power Supply: 500 watts

Anyway, are there any tips you guys could give me that would make my processor better for gaming?

If possible, tell me what to do exactly, or what you would do in my situation.

Thanks

Once I bring the FSB clock from 800 to 850, which voltage do I increase?
The CPU core or the CPU FSB?

Plus, when I run OCCT, the Bus frequency shows improvement of 6.3%, but the CPU frequency will show the same, then show -36.2% decrease, then come back up and so on...

Read the guide!

Disable speedstep or it might be called C1E. That will fix your muitiplier from dropping which is cuasing the change in FSB.

As far as voltage goes, when testing in OCCT small data set,are you failing? If not you have not become unstable and do not need more voltage yet.

What CPU cooler are you using?

BTW, not a good thread title to get help, but we'll try to point you in the right direction.

I think that board has both speedstep and C1E, so disable both..
Also you goign to want to slightly raise your CPU voltage, not the FSB volts.
But only a few millivolts at a time to keep it stable

+ tip for gaming, dont go for too much of an OC for gaming, usually gaming for hours on end causes the system to heat up and that can make a high OC get unstable.
oh and dont forget to go to your profile and fill in your system specs, it makes it alot easier for people to help you when you have a sigrig
