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)

my specs:
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"

Well, definitely sounds like it doesn't support a lot of OCing. Is there no options for voltages, or how about RAM speed and timings?

Heh interesting. I guess what you could do is try, like, 5mhz increments until it fails a stability test or something... but yeah, maybe software will work better I don't know. I just BIOS OC.

ECS motherboards are like that. All you can do is push the FSB up until the system gets unstable, then drop it back.

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

i decided not to overclock using that MOBO, i bought a MSI P7N 750i motherboard!

i will try to do it with this one to see how it goes.

im want to play some of the new games that are coming out thats why
