    I am a total newb to overclocking. I just purchased a new motherboard and cpu and well the cpu is running as a 1800+ not the 2400+ and i don't know how to fix this? I've read a few posts about increasing the voltage and fsb but I still feel clueless. Help?

    Asus a7n8x-x
    T-Bred 2400+(currently running as 1800+??)
    512 megs of pc2100 ram
    Asus Geforce 4 ti 4200 128ram 8xagp

    make sure your fsb is set correctly for the 2400+

    That needs to be at a 133FSB, not 100. It's in your mobo BIOS.

    Well one, you've got PC2100, so its running at its maximum rated speed, so you'd need to upgrade to around Twin 256mb PC3200 sticks.
    Youve got a great mobo for overclokcing, if you get some PC3200 a 200FSB could possibly be attained, definately a 166

    So after i get 2 sticks of 256mb pc3200 ram I'll be running in duel channel mode and I can increase my FSB to 166? what would that do for my processor speed?

    with 2x PC3200 you will being using dual-channel but you will be able to increase your fsb to 200 mhz (or more) not just 166. But in order to do that you will need to lower your multiplier so you can raise the fsb that high and remain stable. It is difficult to tell you how much extra juice you will be able to get out of it. that will depend on the most stable combination of multiplier/fsb that you are comfortable with.

    Thanks alot things are starting to make a little more sense as to how things work. I've read that Low Latency ram is good for overclocking is it worth the extra cash to get it?

    Yes, lower latency, the faster it goes
