    Overclocking is a bit of an art.There are some things I need know before I can help you.First of all what motherboard model do you have? What processor do you have not just the manufacturer, but the model as well.What brand and speed of ram do you have? What are the clocks on it. A number like 5-5-5-18. What is the voltage of the ram? What brand of video card do you have? Lets start with these first and go from there.

Thanks for the info. Here is what I see and this is my humble opinion as I buy everything with overclocking in mind.
Your processor is great for overclocking. these babies will go over 4 gigs on front side bus change alone. That's really all you can do with an 8400 since the multiplier is locked at 9 max. I did some research on your motherboard and according to the forums it's a reasonable overclocker too.Unfotunatly your ram is going to limit your performance. You have to use ram that is meant for overclocking because since you are changing the fsb your ram needs to be able follow that increase.Ram makers build extra "headroom" in their extreme series ram. Used to be you paid a heavy premium for this,but ram is so cheap these days it really isn't an issue these days. First off, get ram that is DDR 1066 and not DDR 800. Being that you are increasing fsb the reason is obvious.Check this ram out. It is exellent for overclocking and with rebate it is 43.00 for 4 gigs at 1066 mhz in two sticks.So get the ram and post me again.

It may not be possible to do this; it depends on your specific model (hardware) and the nature of the BIOS.
If you are able to do this, it will be done by changing some settings in the BIOS. Your BIOS may not allow you change any of the necessary settings. You need to be aware of the consequences of changing the fsb speed on the other components in your system, including your motherboard (see for example http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/topic/11177-how-to-overclock/ - it's rather old though). You might also do it through special software (eg SetFSB - download [not free] http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/setfsb.html I should warn you the it says "If you are a beginner, do not use this software. This software is for power users only. Use "SetFSB.exe" at your own risk.".

I do not advise increasing your fsb.

My core 2 duo E6550 does not work on my foxconn g41mxe motherboard


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813186187

Motherboard supports Processors with a Front Side Bus (FSB) of either 800Megahertz, or 1066MHz.

1333MHz FSB support is done with OVERCLOCKING.

http://ark.intel.com/products/30783/Intel-Core2-Duo-Processor-E6550-%284M-Cache-2_33-GHz-1333-MHz-FSB%29

Intel Core2 Duo E6550 processor has a 1333MHz FSB.

http://www.manualowl.com/m/Foxconn/G41MXE/Manual/297328

I reduced the view size to 120 percent. Go to Page 27.
Press DELete key to enter BIOS Setup.

Use Down Arrow key to highlight - Fox Central Control Unit
Press the Enter key

CPU Frequency Setting should be set to 333 (333MHz)
Intel processors are 'Quad Pumped'
333MHz x 4 = Approximately 1333MHz. (1332)

http://www.foxconnsupport.com/cpusupportlist.aspx?type=mb&socket=Socket%20775&model=G41MXE&cputype=Intel

Note the version of the BIOS program also.

Overclocking aopenax4b-533 mobo


In some motherboards, you can increase the multiplier, which will increase your processor speed.(Briefly, Processor Speed = FSB x Multiplier) You can also increase the chipset, memory, and CPU voltage, which will sometimes allow you to have a higher FSB. There are other settings such as PCI Bus and AGP Bus, you generally don't want to touch those, either they might put risk to your PC, or that they won't make much difference in performance. Be careful when you overclock because you can really damage your computer that way.

My processor is rated at 3000 but is only running


What you are trying to do is called overclocking, and there are some excellent guides for that on the internet, like here: http://www.compunamics.com/overclocking.htm
I suggest you read this before proceeding the overclocking.
You can open the BIOS (press a key like F1, F2, F8 or del during startup). Somewhere there will be a menu with options for voltages and frequencies (units in V and MHz)
As you have read, processor speed depends on the multiplier and front side bus speed: CPU Multiplier x FSB = CPU frequency.
Right now, your frequency is 2200 MHz (presumably 11 x 200)
To get it to 3000 MHz (3GHz), you either have to raise the option called FSB in the BIOS to 270 (270 x 11 = 2970), or increase the multiplier to 15 (200 x 15 = 3000). Before you do so, write both the values down, so that you can reset to them, in case things go wrong.
I sugest first trying to raise the multiplier from 11 to 15. It may however, be locked at 11. If you can get it to 15, you're done, your CPU is now running at 3 GHz.
If not, you'll have to go through some more trouble.

First, you'll need to find your memory (or RAM, or DDR) multiplier and frequency, in the same menu as the FSB and CPU multiplier. Write them down as well.
As you have also read, increasing the FSB will make your CPU and memory go faster. This may however, be too much for the RAM to handle.
With the FSB frequency and multiplier, you can calculate the frequency of your RAM just as with the processor.
You will now have to change FSB from 200 to 270, so you'll also have to calculate a new RAM multiplier, if you want the RAM to run at the same speed.
For example, your RAM frequency can be 200 (FSB) x 2 (multiplier) = 400. If you then increase FSB to 270, your RAM will run at 300 x 2 = 600. You will have to lower the multiplier to get as close to 400 as you can get, and preferably lower, if 400 cannot be achieved.
Having done this, you can slowly start to increase FSB, I would suggest by 10 at a time. As soon as the PC has trouble starting, in the BIOS, increase the CPU voltage by one step, until it runs stable again. However, as your CPU is rated at 3GHz, you shouldn't have any trouble with this,and should not have to increase voltages.

If you encounter any probems, let me know!

I have a intel dg31pr motherboard with e7200 processor.i want to overclock it.plz help me............


Overclocking is something you should only do if you are fairly experienced with computers. Most motherboards that overclock are made for overclocking as are the processors used. Good overclocking requires a balance of increased FSB, multiplier, increased voltage to the ram and sometimes the processor as well, and excellent cooling. It is easy to burn out your system by overclocking. There are many things you should know first. For that reasion alone it is impossible for me to tell you how to overclock it.

But, go to www.extremeoverclocking.com. This is a site made for people who want to overclock. Read and browse through the forums. You will also find some excellent by the numbers guides there. Sigh up and jump in. When you perform your first overclock, come back and tell me. I've been overclocking since 2002.

Changing FSB & Voltages


Hi there.
You can change the front side bus in the bios if the bios supports it, if it does be very careful not to overclock the processor to much as you can cause damage to the motherboard and blow the processor up, also bear in mind that cooling is very important when it comes to overclocking.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

2.4GHz 533MHz FSB to 2.4Ghz 800MHz FSB


Yes, you can put any Pentium 4 or Celeronsocket 478 processor in there, including those with an 800MHz FSB onthe processor. Don't waste your time with only a faster FSB unless youjust happen to have one laying around, the performance won't improvethat much. This one is $50 from Newegg.

Upgrading the components is not overclocking. Overclocking is when youforce the components to run faster than they are rated for. Yourmotherboard is set up to allow this, through the BIOS. Severaloverclocking features areintegrated into the BIOS, including the ability to adjust the FSBfrequency, and the Vcore, DDR, and AGP voltages.

If you choose to overclock, be prepared to make frequent changes toachieve best performance vs. stability. I would suggest upgrading yourcooling to the best you can afford as well. Your PC may lock up orrefuse to boot for no apparent reason if you overclock. Be preparedfor that and know what to do about it before you start youroverclocking career.

Overclocking past 2.7GHz with Q6600 GO step


Please check BIOS update from mainboard manufacturer website it there has a solution for overclocking and others. Else don't push your motherboard so hard, you might get extraneous problem.

Compatible processor


Yes, if you overclock you computer, I believe if you enter your bios of the motherboard, asus already has a pre overclock options. That is if your using a p4 2.8 ghz processor. You can not put a 3ghz processor and overclock it to a higher fsb, your motherboard will literally smoke up but, most motherboards probably can easily detect a non compatible CPU.
