I want overclock my system just out of curiosity to see if there is a difference. My system's specs is in my sig. What I intend to do is overclock but not to the degree that I need extra cooling. My system is in a fairly large case, I have a double-fan PSU from ThermalTake, stock fan on the CPU, A chasis fan, and an extra fan right infront of the hard disks.

So, what should I do? I've read in my Asus mobo's manual something about safely auto clocking but didn't go deep into it. Also, a few links would be of great help :thumb:

Thanks in advance!!

P.S. on a sidenote, the memory is running in dual-channel and I got an extra stick of 512....can I use it and will there be any benefit of going from 1GB to 1.5?? Thanks again!!

I can't tell you exactly how far you can go with that system, but when raising the clock speed do it slowly. Raise the speed slightly, and then test the system for stability in a game, then raise it again slightly, repeating this process until the first signs of instability show up. Once you find that point, put it back down a notch, just to be safe. It may seem obvious butjacking up your processer speed 500 mhz the first time you overclock it will probably do some major damage.

go to the overclockers.com forums they can help you out on what to expect.Do your reasearch on your hardware before testing. Know what your are getting into because u can ruin your computer.then like nahteecirp said and do it slowely but instead of playing games i would use prime95 and test your unit and motherboard monitor to see your temps. If it runs for 24 hours without errors then you should be fine as long as your temps within reason.
