    Overclocking


    I'm not sure if this is the correct forum or not, but I didn't want to post it in the Hardware forum because it's not about compatability issues If it belongs somewhere else someone please move it

    How many people have their CPUs or other components overclocked? I see it as a great way to get the most power out of hardware.

    My friend just gave me a Thermaltake Volcano 9 with the ever so noticable puke orange Thermaltake fan. I haven't purchansed any thermal compound yet, but can anyone estimate on how much I'll beable to overclock my Athlon XP 2600 (2.13GHz)?

    1.7G and you call it slow? what about my 933Mhz and 800Mhz? Fast enough for Linux.

    how would i go about overclocking?

    i have about a 1.9 pentium 4, and would like to make it faster, i basicly wana overclock everything, memory, geforce 2 card (mainly for D3 and better FPS)

    the only things i dont want/need to overclock are my network cards, cd/floppy/hd and my soundcards, mainly i want the gfx, but my current geforce 2 64mx is pretty powerful, but old

    To overclock you need to go into your BIOS and change the CPU multiplyer. That is, if your motherboard supports overclocking features
