    Overclocking help for Asus P4s333-c

    I recently bought the ASUS P4S333-C motherboard with the Intel P4 1.8A GHz CPU.

    I would like to overclock it to get higher speeds such as 2.2 GHz.
    Can anyone suggest me a step by step guide to overclocking it? Mind you, I have never performed overclocking before.

    If you have PC2700/DDR333 RAM, then go into the BIOS, up the RAM voltage to 2.7v or 2.8v if the option is available. Then raise the FSB (Front Side Bus), AKA the Host Clock or Bus Speed, from 100MHz to 133MHz. Raise the CPU voltage to 1.55 or 1.575v. Save settings and exit BIOS. If computer boots up, run some stressing applications such as a game or a benchmark repeatedly. If the computer fails to boot, reset the CMOS jumper and then repeat the above steps and increase the CPU voltage (Vcore) to 1.6v or 1.65v, and see what you can get from there.

    Oops sorry, I don't even know what I was thinking. You don't need PC2700. PC2100 is designed to run at 133MHz FSB, so you can use my same instructions as above. Actually, you won't even need to up the RAM voltage. Not sure why I said that either...guess it was just too late for me to be posting
