hahah, to OC your cpu, just raise the FSB in the BIOS. If your cpu comes with an extremly high multiplier, lower it to around 8-10 and find the highest FSB that your cpu will be stable at. Then calculate the highest clock speeds. (FSB x Mulitplier = Clock Speed) Keep in mind that a higher FSB and lower mulitplier is faster than a low FSB and a high multiplier. It takes some time and patience. Good Luck!
