Hello! I have a Dell Dimension 8100 PC with 384MB RDRAM and the Dell Dimension 8100 motherboard, an Intel 850 (not E) chipset, and the Intel pentium 4 processor at 1.4GHz. Obviously, I am going to upgrade, but, first, I would like to try my hand at OC'ing my Pentium. Unfortunatly, the BIOS shows no FSB/Multiplier/Voltage controls, so, can anyone point me to a tool (other than CPUCool and SoftFSB they dont work for me) that will let me OC my CPU or RAM :?:

The 850 is a PC800 RAMBUS rig. None of the Rambus 850 or 850e's like any type of overclocking. Too much voltage is already being pumped into the memory bus anyway.

I have an 850e based rig with PC1066 RAMBUS and it won't budge. It's the lowest OC recorded in the 2.53"B" list over at Overclockers.com (2750...LOL, that's a whole 220Mhz:p). Water, voltage...nothing gets it to move. It's the curse of the RAMBUS.
