    I can find no information for a Gateway FX 6200-01e.

    More info is needed about your system specs and it's components.

Overclocking name brand computers isn't generally a good idea. They use the cheapest parts available and the overclocking options are quite limited in most cases.

If you want to try anyway keep in mind you can make your system unbootable and make it impossible to fix. But post what cpu you have and how fast you want to go, let's see if it's possible.

Overclocking


There are many issues to consider when overclocking and the first is to be sure that you have extra cooling for your processor. On this motherboard I do not recommend overclocking but since ASUS says that it can be done I will try to give you some places to get information on your A7V880 system. If you do not have your user's manual, you can go to the link below and download one.
http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_Socket_A/A7V880/#download . Leave the OVER_VOLT1 jumper on the motherboard on the default of pins 1 & 2. Refer then to section 2.4.5 on pages 2-21,22 of the User's Manual for Jumper Free configuration overclocking settings. In BIOS Setup I suggest a CPU Multiple of 10 or less. If you choose to use the AI Overclock Tuner instead, a setting of [Overclock 20%] or less would be best. The VCORE Voltage setting will depend on the specs for the CPU that you are using. If you don't know leave it at Auto. As I said before, overheating of the CPU is a problem in overclocking and you can monitor the temperature via the Hardware Monitor. Refer to section 2.5.6 on page 2-26 of the manual. Modern cpu overclocking normally does not exceed 20% safely unless you are willing to spend a lot of money on liquid cooling and frequent replacement of damaged processors. I would be interested in hearing whether you decide to overclock or continuing with your present settings.

System failed due to cpu overclocking. Not setup for overclocking in the bios.


Reboot, and enter BIOS SETUP mode.
Choose "Load Default Settings".
This will "undo" any overclocking of your motherboard and of your CPU.

Overclocking


Overclocking is set from the BIOS configuration. Not all BIOS allows overclocking, it may need a BIOS upgrade.
Check the ASUS WEB site for your model motherboard.
Overclocking the CPU (ie running at a higher clock speed) and increasing Frontside bus speed will give better performance BUT there is a downside too, if you overclock too high you could overheat the CPU and it could fail.

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!!

Overclocking


try in the bios first. it will be under something like 'cpu pnp options' then select overclocking, ENABLE. then under it it may have something like a bus frequency setting. it should be at the stock setting. to overclock, set the # higher. hope that helps you, cause that's what i did. BE SURE TO HAVE ENOUGH COOLING FIRST!!!

download speedfan to check the cpu temperature. (Free)

Cpu overclocking


Try this. press ctrl-alt-delete to view your task manager. Click the processes tab. From the list of items, look at CPU and Mem Usage to see what all is running.

Overclocking failed


Hi, If you have overclocked: 1. CPU or motherboard not up to it - run at default speed; or 2. Memory - try using other memory; or 3. Video Card - see if you can run the Video card at default speed and not with overclock speed; or 4. You may need to up the CPU B+ a bit. If not overclocked: a. Set BIOS/CMOS to default settings; or b. Disable any overclocking feature (even if not used); or c. Lower you CAS latency. Hope this be of some help/idea. ood luck and kind regards.
