Sup guy I just built my new rig after running a POS Dell 2400(that 400$ one you see on TV all the time).I used the wonderfull Maximun PC "Biulding a Dream machine".Thats a AWSOME book for people like me>I just want to say without that I would be typing this on a Dell right nw.Thanks.Ok now what I want to do is OC my new rig,specs are....
Aspire X-Superalien case with 420 Watt PSU(the high end kind 150$)
DFI Lanparty UT NF3 GB (I like the color and heard good things)
AMD Athlon 64 3400+ (Retail Stock cooler)
1GB (2x512) Corsair XMS Low Latency DDR400 (Oh yea)
Hitache 80GB SATA HDD (Was low on cash)
eVge 6800GT AGP 8X (Enough said)
Floppy from the Dell
Cd burner from the Dell
Another Cd-rom I found in the compUSA dumster
Ok I already tried overclocking.But when i Changed the FSB from 200 to 205 and the MC from 12 to 14 it said when I right click my computer and went into properties it only said 2.52.So I went even higher and (210-15) and it still said 2.52.Like WTF?I didnt change any voltage or anything.The temp only went up a few degrees.Im only 14 and need some help from you old fats
What I relly could use is some voltage and clock speeds from other 3400+ users.Now the DFI lanpart is suppose to be great for overclocking but I am having no succes.Rember its a socket 754 if that counts for anything.Thank you guys.
