    ok, so what would be the steps?

    1. set the multiplier to 10 and set fsb to let say 266, 300, 333 etc, no problem, i understand how to do it
    2. i have to change ram fq and maybe timing... how ?
    3. what about voltages on cpu, ram and maybe elsewhere ?
    4. any other important settings ?

    I am not going to reach an extreme OC, I prefer stability, longterm reliability (at least 3-4 years) and reasonable power consumption, so I think something around 3.3 - 3.5 would be acceptable maximum for me. 1GHz overclock sounds terrifying for me coming from P4 northwood, you know...

    thanks

    ok, i tried to play with bios on my own and found that I cannot reach any high oc by lowering the multiplier. I went down to 10 and only was able to get to winXP with 320MHz at 1.3875V CPU, 1.2V MCH and 2.1V RAM, the other settings I left as suggested by Lsdmeasap above. I also (finally :)) understood the logic of setting the ram frequency, so I kept it at 800MHz or below all the time.

    3.2Ghz is quite dissapointing, but I could reach stable 3.33GHz by using 12.5 multiplier and 266 FSB though under the same setting.

    What does it mean ? Should I try to increase fsb further with higher multiplier or increase voltage or something else further with lower multipliers ?

    thanks

    are you increasing fsb or northbridge voltage?
