Re: overclocking my 4200+
k8 cpu clock ration, for your cpu, that surely should be 11X ??? or is that not the multiplier?
3.2ghz is an unrealistic goal, especially on stock cooler.
Set HT frequency ratio to 3.0 or 3.5
set your DDR clock to 100mhz (only initially)
Then you can increase slowly your cpu frequency until it stops posting. Increase 5mhz increments, then save in bios and restart. Once you reach your maximum, try increasing your cpu voltage just a little bit, and see how far you can get your cpu to go with the new voltage. I'm not sure what voltages your 4200+ works at, but i believe 1.35v is default, and i'm sure you can get it to 1.50 or 1.55v safely. The stock heatsink for the 4200+ is pretty good i believe, its got the heatpipes.
Once you know the limit of your CPU, now you can start looking at the ram. Set your ram back to 200mhz and your cpu clock also to 200 and start increasing slowly until it stops posting, once it stops you'll know the limit of your ram. Set the appropriate divider once you know the limit of both ram and cpu. I'm not sure how the settings for the ram on your mobo is, but you either set up a divider (e.g. 3:5) or you set the speed manually.
