    I currently have my motherboard set to 1.65 voltage. This is the normal setting for my board. If I increase this number, will I get better performance? I hear bad things about increasing the voltage on your board.

    In regards to my PCI bus speed. I have it set at 1/1. I also have 3/4 and the auto setting's. With changing this, Can this help my board as well?


    My current board and setting's are below.
    Thanks,

    Increasing the voltage is only needed if you are having stability problems with the CPU being overclocked.
    The 1/1 and 3/4 settings I thing you will find refer to the FSB/memory settings, which as your CPU is a 133MHz FSB one the 1/1 setting would have both running at the same speed. You would only use the 3/4 setting if your memory would be able to run at 166MHz. :smokin:
