Hey all,

I am thinking on overclocking my computer (Which as it stands is pretty decent) and I was wondering if I could get some input on what to ajust from some OC experts. :D I always thought overclocking was basically putting your computer on sterorids and wasn't good for your system in the long run. I am trying to just eek out a few extra mhz, without completely frying my mobo. (Which is why it woudl nice for OC experts to put in there input :D :)) It would be nice to be running at 3.0ghz, or even 3.2.

My computer specs are in my sig.

THANKS!

If you have the original Gateway motherboard then your probably out of luck. Brand name systems don't usually have any overclocking settings in the BIOS and rarely have the capacity to go much higher or be stable.
