  1. What kind of motherboard?
  2. it n old intel 865
  3. ihave a stock hetsink with an external fan aswell
  4. A new motherboard would be a good idea. Also, get yourself a new cooler coolermaster v8 is NICE along with others. As for a how to, you need to look up the threads on overclocking those specific procs here on the THG. Im sure you find what you are looking for.

    If you have a store bought computer you most likely will not be able to overclock it. The motherboards on those computers are locked where as if you build your own you can change the options in the bios. One of the most important things is to keep your temperature within the chips suggested operation temperature. This normally means buying a heat sink to take care of the extra heat generated by overclocking. You may want to download prime95 because it is fully uses your cpu so that you can check that it is stable and that it is under your temperature limit. A good spot to start is with an AMD black edition chip because the multiplier is unlooked.

    If you find out the exact model of your motherboard you can search for overclocking info on it. If a board can overclock someone mostlikely wrote up how to do it somewhere. All you need to do is search for it.
