Help on Over Clocking

what do you need to do to overclock an AMD Anthlon XP 2000+, with a Soyo Dragon + Mobo, with a Volcano 7 Cpu fan.

Don't know anything about the over Clocking process, never did it, don't really no anything about it.

Thanks/Rob

  1. Go into the BIOS and change either the multiplier (if you can), or the front side bus (should be at 133 now). Raise the voltage (vcore, should be at 1.75, I believe) if it's unstable at higher speeds. Watch your temps, don't want to get too high. At any signs of instability, go back down in speed. Go in small increments so you can find your exact limit.

  2. Wait, When you want to Over clock, that's all you have to DO....so if its at 133, what if i put like 145...

  3. Don't put it straight to 145, that's way too big a jump. Move as small as possible, boot into Windows and run 3DMark2001 once. When you start getting errors, up the voltage and/or go back down in speed. Eventually you'll find the highest stable speed that doesn't overheat.

  4. from your experience, do you know what would it would be exactly, aXP2000+, soyo dragon +, and assuming either the volcano 6cu,7 or what you suggested the alpha...
