hey guyz,
looking for some o'c ing tips. .wanna get better performance outta mah machine. gotta XP2700+, asus a7n8x-x mobo, 512m pc3200 ram, and a 80g 8m hdd.
ive heard somewhere that having a fsb different to the memory's freq results in reduced performance, so was wondering if i should stick the fsb up to 200 (from 166) and drop the multiplyer down to 11 (from 13). the core speed wouldnt change much.. but the performance would be better?

And the memory, ive got Kingmax ram.. which ive heard different reports of.. some saying its a budget ram and others saying its one of the best.. but is it worth changin the settins? atm its 2.5, 4, 4, 8.
looking at getting another 512mg to put it in dual channel mode. is this a big performance jump?

One last thing.. my case is set up so that the hsf is right near the 2 rear exhaust fans (one in particular)... doesnt the hsf need air to blow on the cpu? should i reverse that one so its an intake fan and change one of the other intakes to an exhaust?

Thanx for all ya help

Here is RJ's Overclocking Guide.' ">

Proper air flow in a ATX case is to intake cool air from the lower front of the case and exhaust hot toward the upper back. The way you have air moving through you case cooling various components and the CPU. So leave the two in the back for exhaust and just make sure cables are tied up and out of the way so air can
flow through.

Your memory is rated to run at speeds up to 400 mhz. It will run just fine at 333 mhz. In most cases memory is always backward compatible.

Yes the 200fsb X 11 setup will give you the best possible performance for the components you have. Those memory timings are just fine for regular use and another stick of 512mb in dual channel mode will be a performance boost in high end applications.
