hi ,
I was just wondering is it possiable to change the fsb of a motherboard to like 170? And how do you do it, where can I read up on it ? and the same with voltage how do you change that on a mobo? I seen ppl that overclock and they have like fsb at 170 they say. And I see some motherboards if you change the dip to highest fsb its like 133. so that what I can not understand how do you go from 133 to 170 ? if it say you cant in the manual ?

BIOS, my friend. With so many options to choose from, jumpers became too complicated, so most overclocking boards give you BIOS options.

fsb of 170 is too high, and you will need to lower the multiplier of teh cpu. imagine a tbird 1g ruiing at 1.7 g just with fsb changed to 170. you will need a lot of cooling gear. anyway, 170 is not a practicle value and its heavily dependent on the chassis, peripherals and board conditions. a value of upto 150 is okay to o/c.

in some cases you might need to change the crystal on the board to get higher fsb.
