software overclocking isnt that great the best thing to do is just do it from teh bios its permenant and u have more options generally thats what i did with mine i have been able to overclock my CPU from 3.0GHz to 3.4 on stock cooling and it seemed to run alright the temps werent even that high but.
you must no what you are doing though it can have some really negative effects if you no what i mean
try doing it through the bios that is the best option buy far

Host & I/O mode
The settings for Host & I/O mode range from -2% to +4%, in increments of 1%.
The settings for AGP/PCI mode include: 63.88 MHz/31.94 MHz, 68.05/34.02, 69.44/34.72, 70.83/35.41, 72.22/36.11, and 73.60 MHz/36.80 MHz.
No other option I think would come close to being one for overclocking. Anyone know how to use these options ?

Well, I love playing games & of course I love getting the best fps on my games as possible with minimum cash required for the improvement. I just thought after reading many reviews that lots of ppl have been able to go from 3GHz to 3.6GHz & so on & well if I could go up to about 3.4 or 3.6 fps would shoot up by 10 for almost every game. I mean that would show some noticeable improvement dont you think ? But if your saying that the risks are way greater than the improved performance I guess no point then.
Anyway thanks for the help guys.

I just thought if I overclocked the processor, its % usage would decrease when the games are running & then better & smoother gameplay will flow in itself. Have any idea what those Host & I/O or AGP/PCI options are ? How they work ?

if you even just want to overclock and see the diffference i would suggest going into the bios and raising the FSB little by little and i mean like say 3 or 4 MHz at a time and if the computer boots and is stable great but remember when a computer is starting up it uses 100% of the CPU's power and that means really high heat so that is where you are likely to do thge most damage
but if you change the settings and the computer boots but it is unstable then i suggest straight away shut down and go back into the bios and reduce the settings
at this stage i would NOT raise any voltages either the CPU Vcore or the Vram this is when you start to generate more heat and damage your components i can give you more info but we want to let you no that this is very risky and should only be done if you have read guides and understand everything
if you DON'T no everything DON'T DO IT sorry to say but if you cant understand somethings and skipp over them then really you shouldnt be doing it
just weigh up the pros and cons
and make the right decision,

FalloutYear those options are available in the BIOS, not a software.
I never said they were available in software. I just said, use the BIOS to overclock .
