Ive got a KT4V motherboard with a Geforce MX 440 Graphics card, 512DDR PC2100 Ram and an AMD Athlon Xp 2400+ Cpu. I was wondering wether anyone could tell me anything i could do to make my system run that bit faster without overclocking.
Im gonna get a new case soon with a better power supply and cooling so im glad to hear any suggestion for overclockin as well. Its not gonna be watercooled or anything like that so i cant go extreme with the fsb and stuff.

I just got my new fan and case so im up for a bit of overclockin. I have a 2400+ Amd Athlon Xp CPU with 512DDR Ram PC2100 and a GeForce4 Mx 440. I want to oveclock my cpu and my graphics card. My fan is the Thermaltake Volcano 9. Ill take any suggestions. Not too extreme though its not watercooled or anything.

problem is your ram,your best o/c is lower multiplier,read the wire trick thread as you need that and then run it at 166 fsb or a bit more

but chances are at 166 your rams not going to boot being only pc 2100

so leave it be as far as multiplier and raise fsb a bit at a time

due to the multiplier bit your chipset uses at around mid 140 fsb it will not boot as agp and pci will be out of specs to much

I thought i would try raise the multipier first as that is the only thing that wont affect my ram and only heat of the cpu.
And anyway on the KT4V u select the dram speed and i think the fsb goes automatically. Somein like that. Ill check again.

ram runs same speed as fsb,hlck or if you have a 133 fsb cpu and 333 ram then hlck plus 33

Exactly so if i cant raise the fsb i have to raise the multiplier. How much do u think i can raise it by.
