Overclocking Possibilities - I am a Newbie

Discussion in 'AMD Overclocking' started by Rob, Feb 4, 2005.

    Greetings to everyone....this is my first time at overclocking. I have read
    a great deal of documentation, NG discussions, manuals, etc. and at this
    point the overclocking concept is let's say, "mentally abusing me", LOL. My
    question is "does my equipment have decent possibilities of overclocking?" I
    have provided a list of my equipment and I apoligize if I've over done it or
    left something out.

    These components are items I replaced/and, or installed:

    1. Thermaltake Silent Boost K8 80x80x25 mm cooling fan and heatsink. I have
    6 additional cooling fans that were included with the 420 watt power supply
    and Raidmax case.
    2. Turbo Case X-Pider TM2000 Thermal Monitor

    No offense to the op, but, why are you not satisfied with your system?
    It's seems pretty kick ass to someone like me with a cruddy sempron
    2400+ (which btw is like a tank, no probs at all)...
    Just being curious, maybe you're from quebec? The quebecers I know all
    like to stick it to the man! lol

    LOL....I'm not dissatisfied with my system. It's just that I got to reading
    about OCing and was interested in what it's all about and what would I be
    able to do with this rig.

    I don't get personal on the WWW, but you ask a straight forward question so
    I have to give you a straight forward answer......I'm disabled and about the
    only thing I can do is mess around on the computer a few hours a day (not
    all days). So I do a heck of a lot of reading and experimenting... ie -
    downloading different kinds of software and testing it out. LOL, you
    wouldn't believe the number of times I've crashed out and had to start from
    scratch with a fresh install of XP. My wife swears I tear it up so I can
    have fun trying to fix it. :)

    Anyway, that's pretty much why I'm interested. Out of all the material I've
    read about OCing, I have yet to find something that says "here's how you
    overclock, step 1... step 2... and so on.

    Thanks for your response, Rob.
