Hello everyone at G2G, once again I return seeking your knowledge!

I'm looking into overclocking my system, I recently reinstalled Fallout3 and loaded it full with mods. Unfortunately, in places my system stutters, now I could just remove some mods, but when I built this system, I seem to remember the components were suitable for overclocking, it's been a while since I built it though, so in all honesty I don't remember for sure if that's the case and well, that's why I'm here :)

Performance Tips
Notice 224 : SMBIOS/DMI information may be inaccurate.
Tip 2511 : Some memory slots are free so the memory can be easily upgraded.
Tip 2546 : Large memory modules should be ECC/Parity.
Tip 2 : Double-click tip or press Enter while a tip is selected for more information about the tip.


This is my mainboard info from SiSoft.

I've read the sticky, so I'm reasonably confident I know what I'm doing, however when you mess with something as expensive as a PC, I like to be 100% sure :)

So a little summary, since I'm a little unsure as to whether or not I have the right stats:

MoBo FSB: 4x334MHz ( 1.34GHz )
Max: 4x400MHz ( 1.6GHz )

Memory Bus Speed : 2x 401MHz (802MHz)
Maximum Memory Speed : 2x 800MHz (1.6GHz)
Multiplier : 12/10x

( edit: Just added the second info there with the memory bus speed max, multiplier etc )

RAM: 2x1 gb sticks of Corsair DDR2 800
Timings:
@400MHz : 5-5-5-18
@270MHz : 4-3-3-12

Just incase, since I feel this may be my weakest link, here is my PSU.

PSU: 500W Enermax Liberty


So basically, I want to know, is this system safe to/worth overclocking? Do I have the right stats there? If so what do people suggest I raise and by how much? Which of those ram speeds is the right one, I'm sure it's the 400MHz ( since it's half of the DDR2 800 figure. )?

As I said this is the first time I've tried overclocking, so please excuse me if I seem overly cautious with my questions. I'm sure it will make more sense once I have all the information in front of me alongside the FAQ from this forum :)

Regards, Akimbo.

Also, what video card do you have?

In fact, it would probably be best if you could list all of your components. :)

In addition, I feel I should note that our overclocking sticky is very out-of-date. Most things in it will not be applicable to your situation.
