Newbie figures out OC'ing.

Been wanting to try it, just never did. Well, I did it today. Started out with a cheapo Fry's bundle comp. AMD Sempron 2200. I added 2 sticks of 512mb. 120 gig HD. It was running 1400 mHz at 45 celsius. Clocking 2102 mHz now at 48 celsius and 50c under stress load. Whoo hoo. I think I am gonna keep pushing it till the processor fries. If it dies, oh well, I got another one upstairs exactly like it minus the memory and HD.

Go to BIOS and adjust your frequency/voltage control.
Make small incremental changes. I went up 2 points at a time. Keep going until it won't boot or you get blue screen of death. Then clear your CMOS and back your number down 2 points and try it again.

You wont be able to do this with OEM PC/board like Dell, Gateway, HP, etc.

My fry's bundle oc's nicely too

Sempron 3100 that runs 2.25ghz with stock cooling and paid 79 for the board and cpu.

Makes a great testing pc.

2007 Taurus SEL - daily driver
1974 El Camino SS - 400sb
