How can i overclock the pm800-m2, 2.4ghz to 3.4ghz safely, and using fan assisted cooling, i know this can be done, but im not sure of the bios settings for this, can someone help, or would it be safer for me to buy a higher processor

Re: overclocking the cpu
Eneble cpu overcloking from bios settings, but I do not recomand this cause you might fry it..:P so...reboot , press del to enter bios settings ..choose cpu setings by pressing enter , choose overcloking ...sellect by pressing enter ..at the end ya press F10 and yes to save and reboot

You have a laptop computer; it is more than likely that the BIOS will not allow overclocking for that unit. Most laptops cannot be overclocked for good reason; they have limited resources and poor cooling engineering. O/clocking produces high heat and they just don't have the setup for additional cooling. For the most part that also applies to most retail desktops as well. The majority of overclockers use custom-built units with CPUs adn motherboard BIOS' that are set up for overclocking, such as Asus and Asrock boards. I overclocked my home build unit, but installed a water cooled system and extra case fan. Standard retail etail units are just not set up with that kind of quality.
Overclock can be done by setting fsb higher by percentage to speed up cpu frequency by percentage. But some cpu can not be overclocked and may overheat and shut down. And some drams can not be changed to higher fsb.
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.
motherboards do not come overclocked, unless you bought it from a person that has already done that. For overclocking, you go into the BIOS but make sure you have adequate cooling in your machine. When you overclock you want the CPU cooler fan to blow away from the CPU instead of onto it. Also you want more fans blowing out the rear of the case if you have one intake fan in the front, two in the rear/side panel. Overclocking causes more heat, and shortens CPU lifetime. I believe you press F2 at boot to get into BIOS on your motherboard. in the BIOS settings you can change the multiplier, but if it doesn't add up correctly, your computer will just hang instead of boot and try a different setting. Although this mobo supports Hyper-Threading and supports Untied Overclocking Technology, so it should be simpler to overclock rather than some mobos are tricky to get it going right.
As for the graphics card with this board: it's an Intel processor so you need a graphics card made by ATI. I would recommend a Radeon graphics card with this motherboard. The motherboard is compatible with Front Side Bus 1600/1333MHz CPUs, so make sure your Graphics card you select doesn't have a FSB faster than that, otherwise you will be wasting money.
Pull your cooler off the processor and clean off the thermal paste and reapply. Seriously think about putting some bucks into a better way of cooling that monster if you are going to be overclocking. 185 degrees is pretty warm, you probably just baked the thermal paste, replacing it will get the cooling effects back in place.
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.
Software tools only work if you have a motherboard chipset which supports them. If you have an nVidia nForce chipset, I recommend nTune. If you have something else, check with the manufacturer of the motherboard and they may be able to recommend a program which can overclock for you.
As a rule I do not recommend overclocking blindly. If you do overclock, make sure you do it safely and be aware that you are voiding the warranty of both your CPU and RAM (unless your memory warranty states otherwise).
Overclocking can be done safely and I recommend you keep a guide closeby when attempting it for the first and 100th times. You can find a guide in this issue of Maximum PC.
