Re: compaq sff overclocking

Unfortunately the bios is locked on those machines. You could edit the bios yourself, but you need to have a deep understanding of machine code. Totally out of my expertise. However it is possible.

How to tweak your computer

Step 1
Back up important files. This includes impotant datas stored on your computer
Step 2
Update the firmware of your computers BIOS. Also update or patch your OS to the lates update and even your hardware devices must be updated as well.
Step 3
Also before proceeding ,remember to get a BENCHMARK test program that will help you see the changes and also monitor the temp. of your processor after overclocking
Make sure that your BIOS is also set to shutdown once illegal voltage or temp. will be detected
Step 4
Ensure that the CPU FAN is clean and is still calibrated to the right rpm
Step 5
Power on your unit ,hit the hotkey to access setup.On the BIOS go to ADV. CHIPSET option.Then look for"clocks, "frequency/voltage control" or "voltage options." This will look unique on each brand of computer.You can overclock by modifying "CPU bus frequency" or "CPU FSB frequency." Increase this value slightly. In some cases, you will be able to increase your "CPU multiplier" through the BIOS.If your BIOS has none of these options,your motherboard is not capable of overclocking the processor.
Step 6
You can also try overclocking your MEMORY AND VIDEO speed. Some motherboards have this options on the BIOS as well
Step 7
You can consult your motherboards manual to know the operating voltage of your cpu or type in the model of the board on yahoo or google.

How to overclock my motherboard ?

there are 2 ways, overclocking using the bios to over clock the memory ( ram ) and also the processor ie changing the multipliers and other tweaks ( which should be in your motherboards manual ) that or using jumpers which are physically on the motherboard but later motherboards use the bios to tweak / over clock your computer.

Can i replace 2.8ghz(bus speed 800mhz, cash memory 1mb)in compaq evo d510 sff model methor boad intel 845g

Yes up to 3.2Ghz with same Bus speed. cache doesnt matter.

Extreme editions and some 3.2Ghz/3.4Ghz chips will need you to flash the BIOS

Let me know how you get on...
