Well, i think that we got off of the topic a little... O/C is not for all but if you would like to try then that is great. The first thing to look at is what kind of chip set you have... Look at all the parts of the computer. It is not just the CPU, the whole package must talk. remember that there is a great deal of information out there on products that work together at high speeds. you must also remember that the newer chips are going to have the multiplier fixed which means the only tweak is voltage and bus speed. http://www.overclockers.com/ great place for info and talk. only way to learn is to try. *S*
