i just finished a new build, and i dont know squat about overclocking. i did some reading and found out i can get this combination to 3.8 ghz? what i have is this:<br>
MB ASUS P5NSLI NF570 SLI 775<br>
CPU INTEL|PD 805 2.66G 775 2x1M R<br>
MEM 1G X 3|MUSHKIN DII667 991521 R<br>
Geforce 7950GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card<br>
and an acer 20.1 inch flat panel monitor<br><br>
that is the main info. not everything is the greatest but some are what i had b4 this build. can anyone help me with the overclocking? i am running windows xp home if that matters.

DONT OVERCLOCK THROUGH WINDOWS! For stability, and familiarizing your self with your computer overclock through the BIOS.<br><br>
The PD 805 uses a 533 FSB, which is quad pumped (133x4)....with a total CPU multiplier of 20. Because your ram is DDR2 667 (166x4), you have some headroom. You dont have to mess around with memory dividers untill you get past a 166fsb.<br><br>
So 20 x 133 = 2.66ghz (stock).<br><br>
For baby steps, I'd suggest 20 x 140. Which would bring you to a safe 2.8ghz. At this setting, I highly doubt you would have to alter to voltage on your CPU (vcore). At around 20 x 160, I'd suggest bumping it up a quarter of a volt (+ .25). Keep in mind, you don't have to leave your multiplier at 20....you can decrease it to any value that you please....but you cannot increase it.<br><br>
Make sure to keep that CPU under 60C at full load.
