Ok so this is my forth build-

NXZT Nenesis Elite Case
Antec 500watt PSU
AMD 64 3000+ 2.00ghz stock
DFI LanParty 250Gb Mobo
1 gig of pc4000 Corrisar RAM
Ati 9800 265mg 128bit

now here is my question, i had previously OC'ed my old Athlon form a 1.83ghz to a 2ghz but thats the only OC'ing iv ever done. I am familiar with the Nforce3 bios but i have no idea how to actually "use" them. I want to OC my proc, ram, and vid card. Is there some other websites that will better help me with this process? or maybe someone else has a similar setup that can relate?

Everything you need to know about what the bios controls do is located in you manual that is on the driver CD for the mobo. You up the FSB and it's voltage (make sure your temps stay under 55C load) for the proc, attached is a chart with what to set for the different voltages, the RAM is overclocked by maintaining a 1:1 ratio with the FSB and it will overclock automatically as you up the FSB. In regards to this, the timings and RAM voltage affect how far you can OC the CPU. Your video card is overclocked through Windows using software. DL ATI TOOL and use the automatic overclock ability to find the max OC for your card (I'm assuming you are using the same vid card as is your profile) One more thing, after you update the bios, turn off the thermal throttle option in the bios. there are quite a few good posts in this site relating to your mobo and similar CPU. search around for them, they are full of information. I think deadlock made a guide for your mobo, you should be able to find it.

I belive you can, its just got to be a boot CD, like its got to be a boot floppy. With some mobos you can possibly even do it with a flash drive/MP3 player I think

Your mobo should have come with a drivers CD and that contains WinFlash which is what I used to flash my board.

For alot of info regarding the DFI nForce 3 check the thread linked in my SIG.

This will help cover the basics of what everything does and from there we can start to help you get your CPU overclocked.

i have another problem, when i start up my comp it shows the mobo start-up picture, and then skips the "press F1 to continue or press Del to enter setup"

whops! nvm i just found that i can just hit the Del key like a thousand times and it works

you only need to press it once as soon as you see the mobo picture.
