    AMD Athlon XP 3000+ (Overclock?)


    Hi,

    Here is what I have about my processor:

    CPU: AMD Athlon(tm) XP 3000+
    Speed: 2167MHz / 166MHz
    Cache RAM: 512K
    Fan Speed: 3515 RPM
    Processor Temp: 48 C.

    I currently have a 1 G. ram card and planning to get another one put in so the two are parallel...

    Also, Planning on getting PCI video card with fan 512 M.
    No seperate power input needed with this card...

    Already have PCI wifi and sound card installed....

    Its an E-Machine computer....

    Is it possible to overclock the processor just a little bit to make it faster

    I do NOT want any hardware damage or I won't be allowd another computer....(Same with software)....

    Can I go a step up with overclocking?

    If So~~~

    How?

    Thanks,

    zBuster

    Sheppard: Yeah, well I try not to let them tell me what I can and can't do.
    Neera: You do not fear them?
    Sheppard: The wraith, nah. Now clowns that's another story. They scare the crap out of me.

    Name brand computers (e-machine,Dell,HP ect.) Do not have the options in their bios's to change the settings needed to overclock them, this is by design.

    You need to build your own custom computer with a standard Non-Proprietary motherboard.

    What would Be thae other side , the hard answer,,,,

    I'm wondering how it would be done, because I might change the board, but it depends on what it is to be changed...

    Thankz,

    The Hard and expensive way is "IF" you can find a board that you could use all of your other existing hardware, You would have to reinstall Windows and you WILL NOT be able to use your E-machines recovery disk as it is locked to the e-machine motherboard and you will have to buy a new copy of window to install on it.

    The MS EULA states that the OEM version of Windows is locked to the hardware (ie Motherboard) it was installed on and cannot be moved to another computer and that is what you would be doing when you replace/upgrade the motherboard.
