now.. heres a system that i built about a year and a half ago (so the components arent exactly the best out there...)
and basically i want to overclock it...
but since i dont really know the limits f the components i have.. thought i would just post them up here, cuz you guys are obviously WAY better than me...
(ohh.. and you can talk crap or say something good about my system if you want)
MB: Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe (5 PCI, 1 AGP Pro, 1 WiFi, 3 DDR DIMM, Audio, Gigabit LAN) (was top of the line back then :P)
chipset: nVIDIA nForce2 Ultra 400
Processor:AMD(is teh best) athlon XP 2800 barton
RAM: Geil 256(X2) MB (PC3200 DDR SDRAM)
Video Adapter ALL-IN-WONDER 9600 SERIES (128 MB)
3D Accelerator ATI Radeon 9600 XT (RV360)
200gb harddrives (80gb WD, 120gb maxtor)
i have 5 case fans (80mm)
i have the ZALMAN CNPS7000B-CU 92mm 2 Ball Cooling Fan
oddly enough my temps average ~46c CPU and 29c MB
here are some everest benchmark scores (which seem pretty low..)
mem read 2136 MB/s
mem write 877MB/S
latency PC3200 DDR SDRAM 2.5-4-4-8 130.1 ns
im gonna post 3dmark scores later...
anyway.. if anyone can give me any tips on hw to overclock this system any and all advice is appreciated...
