For quite some time I have heard about over clocking CPUs, How does one go
about it?

Thanks for the help!

    chnage the multiplier and/or the FSB speed. May need to raise vcore. If
    you change the FSB speed you may need to take other factors into account,
    like PCI/agp/ram buses.

    It's this simple. Multiplier x FSB clock = CPU speed. Although There's
    more to it to get it to work properly.:-)

    I was a newbie a few months ago, and the people in this group helped me a
    lot. So I guess I continue passing the fruits of wisdom.

    A CPUs speed is determined by the multiplying of the Front Side Bus (FSB)
    and the multiplier. For example, 200FSBx10mult=2000mhz(or 2ghz).

    Both the FSB and multiplier setting can be found in your motherboards BIOS
    settings, which must be manually changed.

    Your Barton is most likely locked, which means the multiplier CANNOT be
    changed. Because of this, you should buy some decent ram (PC3200 or higher)
    so that you can up the FSB to 200. This will OC you to 3200+ (or 2.2g)
    speeds.
