when you boot up your computer it will say press some key to enter setup

hit this key
then go into the softmenu
once there you see something that lists your slock speed and says something like stock then whe you hit that it will say eith that or user defined select user defined
once there you should be able to change the clock speed by entering numbers which raise your clock speed
this is kind of vague so if you need any help feel free to email me @ aspire.comptech@gmail.com

I wouldn't get the 512 kit (2x256) if I were you. I'd get either one stick of 512, one stick of 1 GB, or two sticks of 512. Why not? There is some good GEIL ram out there that is pretty cheap right now. I found some GEIL value RAM that will follow an overclock of the FSB all the way up to 255 MHz for a total of 510 MHz. That is pretty darn good for only $90 for a gig stick... but I think it is a sale or something, because just a week or so ago it was like $190? I don't know... at least check into stuff like that.
