Ok. Here's my system:
AMD Sempron 3000+
Biostar M7NCD Ultra Socket A
2 Gig Crucial DDR 400 Ram (1 x 1g and 2 x 512m)
Leadtech NVidia GeForce 6600 GT
Soundblaster Live 24bit
One SATA and Two IDE HD's and Two DVD Burners (if it makes a diff)
500 watt Rosewill Power Suply
*by the way it's all stock cooling in a Thermaltake Xazer 5 case.
I want to overclock this thing a bit but N-Tune causes me to blue screen every time. So I have decided that it sucks. A freind refered me here. Can anyone provide step by step OC procedures? I know alot about computers I just never oc'd before. My freind said I could prolly get 2.2-2.3 out of it. I want to get as much as posible without risking damage. 2.2 should be enough. Thanks in advance for you help.
I've read several forums on the subject but none seem to give good answers that I trust will apply to my setup. I have sifted through the Bios and looked stuff over so that I have an Idea of whats there. I can set all the stuff that everything says too. The only thing is I don't know what to change or what to change it too. My FSB is set to 200 mhz right now and I have DDR 400 PC3200 ram. So if I change the Multiplier to x11 then won't I be limiting my ram? How do i get around this? I use Crucial ram so I think I can oc it too but it's not the high end stuff so i'm afraid it will eventualy get fried. I'm just lost and frustrated. My brain hurts.
Can someone walk me through the steps to ocing this stupid thing please? I would be very happy if you did.
