    I have an old hp vectra running a pentium mmx processor. I am not sure how to check the specs on the cpu in windows so I cant say what it is but I do have 72meg of ram.
    can someone give me a guide as to how to overclock this pc?
    oh I also have a second hard drive from a 486 and want to try running this in the vectra to practise using 2 hard drives can I please have help in trying to setup the best config for this?
    I want to try to learn here so I can use the knowledge to better effect on my new pc when I finish building it.

    thanks in advance

    Hey rad, I don't think you'll get much help at all! I'm fairly noob myself at overclockin, but I DO know theres no point overclockin your machinery - it's too old! just leave it to b the word processor it is. You probably can't because of the mboard, your memory, cpu, etc. Just wait until your new pc is running and then come back to the forums!

    even if you did overclock that machine you would need to relearn overclocking for the new system because the old one will use jumpers to cange the multiplyer and fsb while the new one will do it in the BIOS

    with modern systems its very difficult to make mistakes unless your extremly unlucky, stupid or both.
