    Well, just as a standard for o/c'ing, it goes like this:

    -first, take note of all your stock settings, just for future reference, and, if you wanna see how much of a performance increase you'll get, benchmark before you start.

    after that's done, go into your BIOS, and look at your settings. Your CPU runs stock at 200FSB (Intel quad-pumped = 800mhz) and also take a look at your voltage settings and RAM timings. Also, you should have a way to measure the temps of your CPU and mobo (Motherboard Monitor (MBM) 5 is good, sry, dont have a link, go to google :thumb: ). Make sure that your AGP/PCI are locked (they stay at 66mhz/33mhz) before you start o/cing. Finally, your board will probably run best in 1:1 RAM/FSB sync.

    Now, slightly raise your voltages and then gradually (like, 5mhz at a time) raise the FSB. Remember that as your raise the FSB, you are also raising the RAM and the CPU speeds. Every five mhz, boot into your OS and do a test and look for any signs of something screwing up or overheating (check your temps, run 3Dmark03 for a while and check again). When you CPU starts hitting 50-55C, its time to stop (or get better cooling, whichever). Also, as you raise your FSB, you might have to relax your RAM timings and again raise the voltages some more. If your comp wont run your Operating System but your temps are still low, raise the voltages as that's a sign that your CPU needs more power to run at the higher speed. Remember that as you raise the voltages, the heat also goes up. Whenever your comp refuses to boot into your OS or something else freezes/screws up, go back down to the last setting that worked and post your findings here. Maybe we can help you get it higher :thumb: . THat's just a generic o/cing walk through, there are plenty of great guides online from very respectable sites, look around. Anyways, cheers and good luck, : peace2: Mista K6

    Your system is pretty much guaranteed to do 250 5:4 at default voltage (1.525), unless you have some defective parts or something (not likely). You won't need a voltage increase until around 260, depends on the CPU.

    Other than that, Mista K6 pretty much covered it.
