I am new at overclocking and i got a few questions. This is my current set up. Asus A7N8X Deluxe Rev 1006 i think, AMD XP 3000+, Corsair XMS PC2700 three sticks of 256mb. i currently got it overclock by just add a .5 to the multiplier. 2.160 is the base clock and it is right now 2.250. i heard that the 3000+ can easly do 2.5 on regular air cooling! Can someone plz help me by telling the full set up on the bios, ram times, cpu voltage, i mean the works! My case is the gaming bomb with two Vantec Tornado 92X92X38 mm fans air flow is 119 cfm, powersupply is 500 watt! I also have my video card overclocked. it is a 9800 pro r350 chip with stock cooling core is 412.20 and memory is 365.40!

You have a mobile 3000+ chip? I was under the impression that all of the desktop 3000+ chips had the multipliers locked. Anyways someone could give you the settings, but that doesn't mean they will work. There are to many vairables when overclocking, every system is different, some will go farther than others. Even two identical systems will get different results. You really will just have to slowy work your way up, and benchmark after each increase to make sure you are still "stable"

Personally I get 2.6 ghz out of my 2800+ with air cooling. You biggest problem is going to be the RAM, unless you overclock it as well. To get optimal results you will have to keep your FSB and memory speed the same.

Read the FAQ here first:

Overclock one thing at a time, don't try and do everything at once, just do your CPU and then your RAM, or make a change to the CPU and then a change to the RAM, if you do the things together and then your system isn't stable or doesn't boot, you won't know which one is causing the problem.

Well thats a realative request. Hopefully it is using the 3000+ core so OCing should be good. It would better and easier if you can up the system clock but with onlt pc2700 make is limitating. What is the current system clock, multiplier, vcore, and temps?

I like how he's kind of bragging about his system when there are quite a few systems on these forums that would his machine's ass.

You forgot the verb at the end of the sentence. :wink:
