Oh ok gotcha. I would keep the opty and see how things go with your board. Then if you are not happy with it, you can always choose another board when you have more $

If you do a google with somthing like this (overclocking with Foxconn NF4UK8AA-8EKRS) You may get specific info about overclocking that board. Start there. Also have a look at AMD Overclocking - DIY-Street Forums Lots of great overclocking info!!!

try these steps and post back if you have questions.
How can i check before hand if my timings are corrent and voltage too?

and while increasing cpu clock by 10-15...how long should i scan for each increase? And when should I scan for 8 hours?
Since i only want to get to 2.4 ghz max should i scan for 8 hours after that?

and i dont wanna raise my voltage, a lot of people say I dont need to...

You will need to know the specs for your ram. That means you need to know which corsair ram you have. There are many types of 2x512 kits from most manufactuers. Find out exactly which ram sticks you have and then refer to the manufacturer for their specs (timeings/voltage)

If your computer runs a stress test such as prime95 for 12 hours, then chances are you are pretty stable.

I can't stress enough how you should read this forum AMD Overclocking - DIY-Street Forums All the info you want is there. It will take you awhile to read it all, so the sooner you start the better.

here is the corsair i have
Newegg.com - CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

but i also have 2X512 samsung rams that came with my emachines.
so i am mixing rams.
I have cpu-z.. should i post the ram results?

And as far as running tests for 12 hours...am i suppose to run the test everytime i increase the cpu speed by 10-15?

When i oc, am i suppose to increasethe fsb speed or cpu speed?
im still lost.

I would see how high a can clock and still be able to boot in to windows. Then see how long the system remains stable. Then decrease the fsb a couple notches untill the system can run error free for atleast 8 hours.
