<span style="font-family:'Microsoft Sans Serif';">Well I've been doing computer builds and such for about 2 years, and I've never attempted an overclock before. I bought an Opty 144 (SledgeHammer) slot 939 1.8ghz proccessor for my asrock Dual SataII 939 board. I run a Gig of ddr ram and a Radeon 1800xt PCI X16 512Mb Graphics card. And in all honesty this computer is very slow compared to what I think it should be, so I'm thinking it's time to overclock. I've got a good cooling setup so I'm not to worried about that, and a backup computer if all else fails.<br><br>
I've never done an overclock before, can someone tell me what I need to do to overclock this thing please.<br><br>
Again the Hardware breakdown:<br><br>

-1gb DDR Ram<br>
-Radeon 1800xt Pci x16 512mb Graphics Card<br>
-Windows Xp Pro (obviously not hardware related)</span><br><br><a href="http://img47.imageshack.us/my.php?image=screenshotnz7.png" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://img47.imageshack.us/img47/1180/screenshotnz7.th.png" style="border:0px solid;"></a>

Hey guys, I did the best I could in reading all that stuff and here's what I came up with, I just wanna make sure I'm not going to kill my system from a dumb mistake.<br />
<br />
I upgraded to BIOS 2.2 Official on ASROCK site because i was unsure about all those betas, and i really didnt understand.<br />
