ok today i have decided to overclock my pc, i have a 3200+ venice core!<br>
also.. i have a stock cooler (wich i plan on upgrading in the future)<br><br>
i have a few qs<br><br>
1) i am a bit scared that i might fry my processor. any advice before i start doing it?<br>
2) i have heard people get to 2.7ghz with these. can i expect this on a stock cooler?<br>
3) how much should i step the FSB up each time? what about the multiplier?<br>
4) i know its alot of questions, but i have NEVER overclocked :S

Lower your cpu HT frequency multiplier to 4, set your ram speed to 333 instead of 400, then start raising your HTT by 5. Then do 5 more if thats stable. You may want to lower your cpu multiplier to to see how high you can get HTT-wise before you worry about upping voltage on your cpu. And if you plan on oc'ing more than 400Mhz on your cpu, I would defintely recommend any quality aftermarket cooler, stock is not made for the xtra heat. Download a program like speedfan to monitor your cpu temps at stock settings before you overclock it at all. Then if you notice temps rising more than 10-15 degress C at load, I would definitely back it off in in voltage and speed, until you get better cooling. And that "suckage" ram, if it really does suck will limit your OC. In a nutshell good OC results come when your CPU, Motherboard, and RAM work together well enuff together to push beyond their stated specs.

i know this sounds stupid.. what is HT? never come across it before...<br><br>
mani sound dumb with that :S<br><br>
edit: ok i think i know what it is... now to go fiddle with my cpu ^^

He is refering to the Memorys bus multiplyer, sometimes refered to LDT also.<br>
It's default cam be displayed in 2 ways.<br>
1. 200x<span style="color:#FF0000;">5</span>=1000MHz when the "<span style="color:#FF0000;">5</span>" is used reduce it to <span style="color:#FF0000;">4</span> x for a CPU bus speed of up to 260, beyond that drop to <span style="color:#FF0000;">3</span>x<br>
2. Some BIOS represent it the 2x500=1000 as "1000" and the = of 4x is 800 and 3x is 600.<br>
The idea is to keep it below the 1000MHz. Pushing it to 1040 is fine, some MBs can handle as much as 1080 but pushing it can cause instability.<br>
On the stock heat sink, so long as you have very good case air flow 1.525-1.50v will be you max voltage area before overheating the CPU. 1.5v will be safe with proper instalation and resonable case air flow.

download a program to chek temps be4 attempting (under 55c under load). since u have stock hsf u should worry about it. then go to bios and up frequency up by about 5 mhz at a time and HTT to 4x then log into windows and run prime for 5 mins. if no error, continue to raise by another 5. and repeat prime. once u find that your computer wont post, raise vcore a lil then try again. also, just so that you wont be frustrated, set ram to cl3-x-x-x and divider to 166. that way, it wont be your ram thats stopping your oc-ing, it will be the cpu/mobo. =) just a short summary. chek out the guide they have here. <br />
<br />
and expect around 2.5, 2.7 might be a lil hot and your vcore will be high. to lessen the heat from my comp, i have CnQ on =)

i have used speedfan.. i get 38 idle -- and around 40-48 load.. are these ok? (this is overclocked from 2ghz to 2.2ghz.. i am trying to get atleast a 400mhz opverclock. if not 500 mhz <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />)<br />
<br />
i am in a loft.. very hot in summer ;o.. winter-ish so i ok for now<br />
<br />
Curent stats<br />
2233mhz<br />
<br />
Multi: X10<br />
bus speed: 223mhz<br />
HT link: 893.2Mhz<br />
<br />
idle temp is 38C
