Hello
I am trying to figure out how to O/C my processor from within the American Megatrends Bios set up screen.I can see the cpu settings but i am unable to adjust the setting manually, it's probably something simple ,but i know that trial & error in the bios config can cause all sorts of probs! The top line of the screen is Chassis Intrusion, i have enabled/disabled/auto this setting and thats as far as i can go.I would be grateful of any advice.

Welcome snowman <_<

Intel CPU's have locked multipliers, so you can't adjust that. Your only option is to increase the FSB (Front Side Bus) speed. Go slow, a few mHZ at a time, until you experience a crash or lockup, then back off a few mHz.

If your system won't restart after a crash you may need to clear your CMOS/BIOS using a jumper on the motherboard, or by disconnecting the power and removing the battery for at least five minutes.

Whenever you overclocking it's a good idea to watch your temps using a program like Motherboard Monitor, or CPUcool.

Thanks for the fast reply,
I still have a small problem tho! how do i access the fsb settings in the bios?
I can see the temp's etc but they are greyed out and inaccesible!
I have got those two programs u mentioned, i believe it is possible to adjust these settings from within the "safety" of the windows environment.While im on , what do you think of the creative 128mb GForce FX5200 Ultra? i just bought one and have'nt seen any extra perfomance after taking my Mentor 64mb Gf4 MX440 SE out! <_<

Clockgen is also good software for overclocking. When given a choice it'a always better to overclock uising the BIOS, but this option isn't always available. As is the case with all Intel motherboards, and mobo from most major mfgs (Dell, HP, Compaq, etc).

The FX5200 isn't really that much of an upgrade from your MX440. You'll only notice the difference when playing DX9 games, or when turning up the AA and AF.
