    Hello, i'm quite a newbie when it comes to overclocking.


    I need some help regarding overclocking.


    Let me post my specs first to get an understanding what i want to achieve:

    Motherboard: Asus p4p800 intel 865P FSB 800 dual DDR
    Memory : 2 pc3200 256(512 in total)
    Videocard : ATI 9800 pro 256
    Powersupply: 300 watt from an standard ATX midi deluxe case
    CPU : 3.0 ghz
    Cooler : standard case and mobo cooler

    So my question was, what is the optimal amount of MHZ without harming the computer as i am planning to OC it to 3,3 ghz?

    As you may have noticed my English isn't very good i apoligize for that.

    Thanks in advance,

    Tormentor

    875 chipset will be a little faster because of its improved memory bandwidth, but it isnt huge. It is within 5% of the 865PE.

    To overclock you need to get into your BIOS and adjust the FSB. The default number is going to be 200, and your multiplier is 15. 200x15=3000mhz.

    FX5900 - 3DMark2001 [20,566] - 3DMark2003 [7,281] - Aquamark3 [56,694]
    Ti4400 - 3DMark2001 [16,028]
