How do you raise the vcore???
I've been looking around, and when people talk about oc'ing, you usually always have to raise the vcore, but what no one explains is, how to acutally raise it.
I'm thinking it's probably unique to your motherboard brand and chipset and so on. Is there any fool proof way of doing this?
I'm trying to oc my Biostar M7NCD, it came with a crappy warpspeeder program, but all the oc controlls are locked, i checked out the biostar website, and according to them, it doesn't even support my mb.
I think i'm at a dead end here, can anyone help me?

well on my asus tx97-e there is some pins next to the multiplier which is located by the processor and i unplug them all and i got 2.0 volts plug one in get 2.9 plug in a another get 2.8...it all depend on your mobo

Vcore might be in bios, might be jumper pins. You can oc without upping vcore for a while, the Vcore doesnt make it faster, just makes things more stable at higher overclocks. Thus, if you are just doing a little, you might not need to do it at all. Its harder on the chip. You really need to look at the mobo manual to know how on yours.

I found a solution to that problem... get a new motherboard.
sure it's a fine mb, but not for overclocking.

The Biostar mobo worked great for me. Pop in an AMD Barton 2500 and bump up the FSB. Now it runs at 3200. You're right, you can't move the vcore but I found I didn't have to. If I bump it to 3201 it crashes. 3200 is good enough.
