CPU: amd athlon X2 Dual core processor BE-2300 1.90
bios: Award (10/10/07)
Motherboard name: Acer F690GVM

Since i have a Acer Motherboard i know its locked can anyone tell me what i need to do to safe oc. how to it where to start this is going to be my first overclock. It was recommended to me that i just buy a new mobo with a new cpu. I might just do that but i rather save money since i just spent $130 on this new card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150448&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&AID=10446076&PID=3675192&SID=skim951X490024. but i dont know if any ol am3 mb will fit since its a acer tower. I've read newegg reviews for the same cpu i have but from newegg not acer i dont know if the acer ones are built different but ive read its stable up to 3ghz oc.

**PSU:650 watt BFG +12V1 20a +12V2 20a

* RAM: 5GB 3x1gb 1x2gb

* Hard Drive:250 gb

* Optical Storage: DVD±RW

* Graphics Card: Geforce 7300gs I also have a9600gt lp(9600gt is over heating)
i thought it was the PSU i upgraded from a 350watt to a 650
btw i will have a new card tomorrow this is it.

Id also like to note that i did find this thread with similar components and im not certain if it applys.

  1. Finding the correct ID and the program that can modify the clocks while the machine is on in windows is quite rare. You might as well purchase a new board, overclocking the energy efficacy models are easy and normally don't need much of any voltage increase at all plus they are easier to cool. On older 90nm models though they tend to nuke the ram in the process so make sure the ram is running cool.
