    Maxtor 120GB
    GForce FX 5200 128


    questions:
    1. some people go up to 3.2 with this cpu. how come the clock thing in bios says max is 233?
    2. if i update bios, is there a possibility that my comp might be damaged? will my bios be fried?
    3. how do i change the FSB/RAM ratio thing? i don't c it in my bios
    4. do i need to change the FSB/RAM ratio if i were to go a bit higher than 2.6. how do i change it.? anyone wana post a guide or link to a guide?
    5. is 36 deg C good for idle? my load is around 44 playing halo

    EDITED: For help. (Yes yes, I can help too.)

    Well, it seems, oddly enough to some people, that your Ram is holding you back. Your fsb is going to 233, and if im not mistaken, thats also what your RAM is being set to run at, where as its normal is 200. 233 for 3200 ram is pretty good, but if you want to get such high FSb's as say 300Mhz, that would be needed to push it well over the 3Ghz spectrum, then I would suggest going with some 3700 Ram, which is more of an Pentium Overclocking Ram in my experience.

    BONUS! : http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu/displ...2400c-oc_5.html

    There is a site I found on a trial test they did for overclocking.

    Hope is helps,

    and yes, DWK is right, 44 on pretty much full load is fine.

    Oh btw, one thing, who makes your Ram, and what options do you have for it in your motherboard?

    Also, what motherboard do you have....

    Could you give us a link to your motherboard's company product page of it?

    Also, if your have shitty RAM, that will hold you back on how high up you can up the Ram speed (and the FSB as a result).
