well, i was planing on overclocking my pc trough the BIOS!
i ONLY have this options to modify in my bios:
CPU clock: 200MHz ( i can modify it to 512 max) (multiplier set to x15)
auto detect PCI CLK: enable or disabled (it is currently enabled)
spread spectrum: enable or disabled (it is currently enabled)
intel pentium D 925 @ 3.00GHz
ECS 945GCT-M3 with a phoenix BIOS (v3.0E) in CPU Z, it says that i have version 6.00 PG(05/22/2007) (its the latest)
power supply: ULTRA 550 WATTS (model: ULT-H550W ATX Power Supply)
1024 MBytes (i have 2 ram sticks of 1GB each)
PC2-5300 (667 MHz, both sticks together)
Micron Technology (manufacturer)
my video card: XFX nvidia GeForce 9600 GSO overclocked to 650 MHz(core)
i have 4 fans in total in my computer case (xion II case, i removed the big 120 MM fan in the back, and replaced it with 2 80 MM LED fans running @ 3000 RPM each)
my cpu core temps are 30~40c when idle.
im using a "Rocketfish Universal CPU Cooler RF-UPCUWR"
What are your goals? What game are you trying to play, and how much are you 'short' by? The reason I ask is because if you are risking your hardware to play a game, I would think the more prudent approach would be to keep your rig running and look forward to an upgrade in the future.
Not saying I don't condone OC'ing, but my past experiences have involved sub-par components that have been fried by moderate OC
