  1. Overclocking Noob Requires Advise on overclocking-unlocking
    as the title suggests i would appreciate any advise regarding reliable
    sources for overclocking settings for this particular setup. i have searched
    but i have limited time to do extensive searches, so i would really
    appreciate anyone who could point me in the right direction i would like to
    get 3000mhz outta this baby as the web and manual suggests,

    My flatmate has his A7N8X-X with AMD 2500+ running at 3000mhz and is stable,
    however when we attempted to apply the settings to mine the most i could get
    was 2400mhz.
    Computer Specs:

    windows XP pro (i stupidly put SP2 on without reading up on it, but working
    full time for a prick doesn't leave me me with much money or time to do the
    things i want to do, like getting my comp working better)

    CPU: AMD XP 2600+ current speed 2083mhz
    Motherboard ASUS NForce Chipset A7N8X2.0 Deluxe
    RAM: 1 x 512 400DDR
    1 x 256 (not sure on Speed)
    CD ROM: Cyberdrive CW99D 52x24x52 master udma2

    HD's: 1 x 120 GB 8mb cache Western Digital ide0 master udma5
    1 x 120 GB 2mb cache Western Digital ide0 slave udma5
    1 x 30 GB 2mb cache barracuda ide1 slave udma5

    Nvidia geforce fx 5200 128mb

    a web page link to settings would be sweet... or any advise
    thank you,

    Your flat mate is either mistaken or is 'having you on' there is no chance
    of overclocking a XP2500+ to 3000MHz with anything short of refrigeration,
    dry ice ot LN2 cooling.
    Fact is with standard air cooling you have done well to get 2400MHz
    stable.... be happy.
