    how do i overclock

    well i'm interested in overclocking my new PC it's a 850 amd with the KT7 raid and i was wondering how do i over clock it. I change the "multiplier" however it does NOTHING! my friend says i need to draw on the cpu with a graphit pencil. then this will supposeitly unlock my multiplyer. am i correct and if yes where do i draw on it

    I recommend, by experience that up to FSB@110, all should go nice and sweet - get a nice Cooler, one of the ThermalTake Chrome Orbīs or Mini-Super-Orb (2 fans at 5000/5500rpm), but if you want to go further... must tweak extensively that BIOS!!!

    He has a KT7-RAID while you have a KT7A-RAID which explains why he's having limited sucess overclocking via the FSB. My experience with the KT7-RAID (Non KT133A) chipset is that the FSB is best left at 100MHz (200MHz DDR) and the multiplier used to overclock instead.

    My KT7-RAID takes my T-Bird 800 to 1.1GHz via 11.0 x 100MHz.

    look on the processor for a set of dots that should look similar to this: ::::. thoes are the L1 bridges, you need to take a pencil and connect them, they should look like this: | || |. when you are done. also, another reason you might have had problems is your voltage. when you make it go faster then you need to up the voltage to make it stable.


    I DO NOT recomend an "orb" for an overclocking job. a heatsink more like an ALPHA PAL 6035 or FOP 32-1 is more up to the task.
    if you arent bothered by noise then get the GlobalWin FOP 38, it is loud though!

    I hope this helps.. feel free to ICQ me at 13068487 if you have ANY more questions.
