    Hey all. I just built a new computer about 2 days ago, it's fast, but my cravings for speed continue. How will I undergo overclocking my system? I'm new to the "overclocking" world and need some hints, tips, programs, hell...I need anything! My specs are below:

    -Aluminum Server Case w/ 500 watt Power Supply

    -DFI LANPARTY PRO875 P4 (800FSB) Skt478 DDR ATX Motherboard w/Audio, Gigabit LAN, RAID/Serial ATA

    -Intel Pentium 4 Processor @ 2.8 GHz, 800 MHz FSB

    -Corsair Hydrocool 200 Water Cooling System

    -Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 200GB ATA/133 7200PRM Hard Drive w/8MB Buffer

    -1 GB (Two 512 MB) DDR400 PC3200 XMS Memory w/Heat Spreader

    -Gigabyte ATI Radeon 9800 Pro AGP 8x 128 MB DDR

    -Windows XP Pro

    If ya need anything else lemme know. Those are what I can think off at the top of my head. I want to overclock as many things as I can,lol. I have a bunch of heatsinks and a water cooling system, so I should be fine overclocking. Thanx :D

    I'm really don't think that ya'd get much of an overclock goin' there as ya memory will already runnin' at its spec speed, P4C FSB = 200MHz (800QDR) and PC3200 = 200MHz (400DDR). Usually I'd up the core and memory voltages by 0.1v and then increase the FSB but for that CPU I would've obtained at least PC3500 (or better) memory. : peace2:

    Thanks. Can you tell me if my motherboard can handle PC3500? Look right here:

    If it can, cool. If it can handle HIGHER than 3500, I would be really happy :D

    Being a DFI mobo I couldn't really say if it will like the higher rated memory as I've never used that brand but even though they only specify PC3200 that doesn't mean that it won't run the higher spec'd memory as for years now I've been usin' higher spec'd memory in many mobo's than what was the highest supported by the manufacturer.

    Abit, ASUS and EPoX don't seem to have probs with over spec memory.

    If ya followed the manufacturer's links on those pages the last one would take ya to this page which ASUS states that a few PC3500 modules have been tested and approved (my favourite Corsair XMS3500 is listed). ;)

    Wut is meant when people say they will unlock their processors?
    I was reading PcPowerplay and some guy asked how and they wouldnt tell him coz they said it was to hazardous to his pc. So wut does the term unlocking a processor mean and how is it done.
    Wasup punk?
