QUOTE(AMD808 @ May 23 2005, 11:59 PM)Well, as you know, because of chipset limitations, the overclock will not be much (at least a stable one). There is no 6th divider for the board, since it only supports up to 333 MHz FSB. In other words, it will not overclock safely, without raising the PCI and AGP buses. In my opinion, it is not worth risking your hardware for a small overclock.
If you really, really want to try overclocking, raise the FSB speed in 1 MHz increments, and keep going until you experience instability, or if the system will not POST. If it does not POST, then the CPU likely needs a voltage increase - if that's the case, raise it up one level
in the bios.
What I would do to improve your performance a little, though, is go into your bios, and verify your RAM speed is 166 MHz (333 DDR). This way, the RAM will be synchronized with the FSB, 333 to 333. The RAM running at 400 MHz only means it has to wait on the FSB to transfer data at a slower rate which can do two things:
1) Degrade overall system performance
2) Degrade system stability

Sorry AMD808 I thought this was an Nforce2 board. My mistake.
