    Hello all,
    I'd like to start by saying that I've really tried to find the info before wasting anyones time.So if you could help in any way I would really be greatful.
    I'm thinking of getting into the overclocking kick now that my system is nearing its 6 month old date but it seems I my have
    chose the wrong rig.I went with an alienware 2.4 intel,850EMV2 mobo, 1066rambus,and pnygforce4 TI4600.
    overclocking the card was no problem, I used cool bits and got it to 334 core and 696 on the mem.
    now trying to overclock the FSB was different.I cant get at any of the settings im used to seeing on an AMD in the bios.I tried to use a progam(PSUFSB) but it only had older mobo's listed.
    can any one direct me to the right info? Did I buy wrong to achive what I'm looking to do?Or should I just do more homework and start from the ground up for better overclocking ability.(next time,of corse)Thank you in advance.

    I don't know about intel mobos, but it sounds like you are screwed:

    I am curious, why did you go with intel if you had previous experience with AMD?

    Well,for one thing at the time AMD FSB was 266,intel was 533
    not to mention the 1066 mhz ram.3Dmark 01 scores for the intel were much much higher(14100)as well.

    ah I see you relied on FACTS. They are pretty even now, bang for buck wise. The high FSB of the intels doesnt seem to translate to more usable speed.

    Intel boards do not have any overclocking abilities. They are, however, very stable boards and they will run for a long time.
