    When overclocking, do you up the voltage when the system wont boot o
    power on? How do you know when you need to up the voltage

    The first thing to do when you want to overclock is find and read
    information about overclocking. The posts in this newsgroup are a good
    place to start. Also, if you Goggle for 'overclocking' you will find many
    overclocking web sites.

    Exactly how you go about overclocking depends on the CPU type and model, the
    motherboard type and model, and the memory modules. The general procedures
    are the same, but the details are different. Basically overclocking depends
    on trading safety margins built into the CPU for higher clock speeds.
    Intel, and, to a lesser extent, AMD, build CPUs to operate in a stable
    manner under a wide range of conditions, even overheating. If you keep your
    CPU in the 50 C range it is usually possible to overclock by just increasing
    the FrontSide Bus speed and/or the CPU clock multiplier. Sometimes a higher
    overclock can be obtained by increasing the CPU core voltage a SMALL amount.
    All changes should be made in small increments, with a stability test after
    each change. Read the motherboard manuals. Keep good records. Be
    methodical. Ask specific questions BEFORE you start to overclock.
