    Overclocking

    I want to overclock my computer but i was told that the right way to do it is that i have to get a very sharp tip pencil and a magnifying glass and take my processor and put a line through all the cache. That is what I heard i don't know if it is the right way though.

    Do Athlon 1Ghz have locked Multiplyers?? I am unsure any way before you start overclocking make sure that you have a good heat sink and fan and plenty of cooling in your PC.

    There are plenty of guides for overclocking Athlons around I rccomend the one over at www.tweak3d.net

    you dont want to put a line though all the cache....only the L1 bridges, put the line to bridge the gap.

    Use a pencil with the most graphite content, usually a #2 or better, i forget, since I've never done it.
