  1. Read a lot. Then, enter bios, and change the parameters. Don't touch anything if you don't know what you are doing. You can easily kill your hardware...
  2. Any suggestion where i can read about how to overclock.

    You know to tell you the truth you'll probably get less speed when overclocking for the fact that the motherboard and PSU will be limiting the OC CPU. The fact that your socket can only handle so much is going to be your major problem and the threads on the CPU will become ever more strained. I have a AMD 2 Atholon x2 @ 3.0Ghz stock and I would never try to OC it. I would probably get less FPS in Crysis by doing so. Being that its AMD also and the Atholon version its not the best idea so if you want more Ghz or a better CPU that would fit your socket on your motherboard go to newegg.com

    Thanks.
  4. Please ignore "iholbrookv2"
    I think you will get more FPS when overclocked.
    Getting a better engine usually makes a car go faster right?
  5. not "getting" a better engine "modifying" your engine however yes. Add that turbo in there :-P

    Yeah well try putting a turbo on a GEO METRO! The only way the motor will run is if it was meant to run that fast!
