Default OC amd atlon 64 3500+ ?'s

I was wondering why would you want to overclock a cpu?

The amd athlon 64 3500+ does fine as is.

How would it be better if i overclocked it?

Will the motherboard be hurt in any way when i overclock?

Simple....to get more bang for your buck....you can OC the 3500+ to 3700+ or 3800+ speeds, which cost more then the 3500+.

It won't hurt the mobo....getting an aftermarket fan will decrease the temps which is good, and also if you plan to overclock.

A stock fan is fine for a moderate overclock, usually you can go 300-400mhz over without needing a better heatsink/fan.

I seem to be writing this everywhere lately, but I got 2.8GHz on the stock HSF.

And the difference is definately noticeable. Even games run a little smoother.

I tried to get my fan off the heatsink but i don't know how to.
It doesn't have screws.

I have another fan to put on the heatsink but i can't get the stock one off.

Its a thermaltake blower that i am going to put on the heatsink.

dont u want to do any more than a 1mhz fsb OC
bacuse it couldnt be that much faster
just put the fsb up to 210 or 220 and u will see a very noticable difference
about 5-10%
