I have been in BIOS and have began my journey
of breaking this peice of hardware in. I have a clue
of only adding another 50 - 100MHz. to the FSB
but thought I'd ask to make sure if anyone else has
put their trust into a Sempron...What do ya think?
How much should I OC it?

BTW...4 Thermaltake Case fans!

It's not how far you should OC it, its how far you can push it.

Basically, you want to take small steps to the FSB (5 mhz incriments at MOST) and use a burn-in to see if it's a successful OC. Once you see random shut downs, BSODs, reboots, anything abnormal, slowly pull back the FSB in 1 mhz incriments until you find the sweet spot, where it's 100% stable.

I got it to go 10MHz more :lol:

It's now at 343...i first tried 350MHz but it kept restarting :shock:
I figured with the amount of cooling I have it would be fine! :?

Oh well, good enough!

Thanks OCnoob!
