Hello all I'm very new to OC I have alot of knowlege about computers though. I have a Gateway 420GR (Modified case and all) Pentium 2.3, 1020gig ram duel channel, I use a Radeon x700 pro, I have 4 fans 2 intakes and 2 outs.

My question since I have never done OC is possiable to OC mine? I want to run at 3.2 instead of 2.3. I seem to have a prospective on how it works. Is there a place I could learn? I know there is some people here that are pro's thats why I chose to post here. I would really love to make my system faster I don't have alot of money to get a new one or build one. I can get Memory cheap though so I can get my ram to 2gigs. I hope that my computer can be OC'ed and that you can help would mean alot to me and thanks =)

Also twinking my graphics card would be must if possiable.

There are guides on how to overclock your computer on the main page on the right-hand side if you scroll down a bit. To the best of my knowledge you can't overclock a Gateway... After you read the guides check your BIOS to see if you can change the settings the guides tell you about.

Welcome to the forums.


As the others have stated, it's very unlikely that you're going to be able to get more than a small overclock out of your computer, and any overclocking will almost certainly require use of software (rather than the prefered method of overclocking in the BIOS). Taking a 2.3 GHz CPU to 3.2 GHz is an extremely good OC, so it would be a stretch even if you had built the computer yourself (though certainly a worthy goal
).

Depening on your exact system components, you may be able to do some fairly low cost upgrades to greatly improve your system. Sometimes just replacing the motherboard with one that's made for overclocking will make all of the difference, though sometimes it's necessary to replace the PSU and other components as well.

Please take a minute to fill in your system specs in your User CP. Links are provided in my signature. That will better help us help you.

Welcome to the site, and enjoy your stay, most premade company rigs don't have the capability to overclock through the bios, you might be able to with clock gen, there have been some limited success with it, or you could get a after market motherboard.
