I own a PIII 450, 128 RAM on a Biostar M6TBA Mobo. I am interested in overclocking. I saw a site where a vendor is selling the board with a utility called "Winbond Hardware Doctor" for software overclocking. I have never overclocked before, so pardon me if I sound ignorant. My question is this: Does anyone out there have a similar configuration (same mobo) and have overclocked it? Is there a utility like the one I mentioned above, or am going to have to get my hands on the board? Or finally, can I even overclock with this mobo?
Thanks in advance for your assistance!
hardware doctor is a monitoring program, not an overclocking program. It measures cpu temp, fans speeds, etc..
I really don't know anytihng about your motherboard. Generally, you can overclock a board by changing jumpers. If you're lucky, you can overclock your cpu in the bios. depending on some other components of you system (RAM hdd), you may be able to get that 450 upt 558 or more...
