The first thing I did was read up on all my computer's specs and such...Uh, here is what I have:
(Might not be in the right format, i have no clue here)
Intel Pentium D CPU 2.80Ghz (Dual Core)
system clock 200--multiplier 14
4 Sticks of 1024 ddr2 sdram (ddr2-800)
nvidia geforce 7950 512 mb graphics card
windows xp sp 3
The reason why I want to look into Overclocking is that my RAM is way over what my CPU is...and in the FAQ it explains usually the only reason holding you back is that your RAM cannot compete with your CPU. I just recently upgraded my RAM from 2gb to 4 and my graphics card. (By the way- I know that XP only supports up to 3gb ram...was planning on getting Vista soon?)
Anyways- I need a program to control my Overclock settings. I tried to find the bios menu during startup, but the only menu I can find is the 'boot' menu. Am I still able to Overclock my machine? I've opened a few programs, but then they say that can't recognize my motherboard. That's one of my main problems, so here is some information on that:
Manufacturer ASUSTek Computer INC.
If there is any more information I need to provide, please ask for it. I am using SIW to find this stuff.
