Can anyone give a hand on overclocking my CPU or FBS or both? I really don't know the first thing about overclocking and I'll be glad if someone could.

If those are your system specs below you won't be able to do much with it. I am sure your FSB will only support 100 and 133MHz.

Just checked and it looks like it's only 66 or 100MHz

You don't overclock the bus itself when you are overclocking...you are overclocking the CPU by changing the multiplier. Yours is set at either 4 to 1 if your FSB is 100MHz or if it is at 66MHz the multiplier is at 6 to 1

I think that this will shade some light on this subject. I download this program that tells everything about my CPU, take a look:

Not really worried about your CPU, I am more interested as to whether or not your motherboard even allows for overclocking. You could try to bumb the multiplier up in 1/2 MHz increments to see if it will even boot and go from there. The worst you can do is fry your CPU.

First thing you have to do is find out if it's even an option in your bios to change either your multiplier or your fsb. If not, then check to see if there are jumpers on your motherboard that allow it.

I'm not really familiar with your system but if you are really serious about overclocking, I suggest you visit the forum section of www.overclockers.com and head straight to the Intel section.

I'm new at this overclocking business and I don't how to find out these things. Is there any place that gives hard time details that gives it step-by-step? Otherwise, I will look over in the forum and see if I can find something. Thanks for your response.
