we are doing it today or tommorrow. but we need peoples help on finding an overclocking software. the bios on the motherboard does not have OC options and were having trouble finding the phycial pins on the mobo 2 change the MHz settings. all i need is a free and easy 2 use overclocking program so that we can turn it ^ and all that if it works the the older gateway were going 2 use a newer AMD chip and see how it works

yeah. And since the bios doesn't support oc'ing I'm pretty sure that no programs can do it either.

So most likely no oc'ing for that computer.

Smile Re: oil cooled computer!

the point is not to oc the computer. we just want to see how much better the oil can cool, the computer. now if that works right i might think about doing it for my 1.3 ghz AMD computer and oc that.
