|I'm guessing you never overclocked before. Here's your board specs:|
It's an oldie & not particularly a goodie. VIA chipsets aren't the greatest for overclocking because there's no way to lock the PCI & AGP from going out of whack. If you have a 400MHz FSB CPU (100MHz frequency), the max safe frequency is 112.5MHz. If you have a 533MHz FSB CPU (133MHz frequency), the max safe frequency is 150MHz. Do NOT go directly to the max setting...increase the frequency in small increments.
As you increase the CPU frequency, the RAM frequency will increase along with it, so keep that in mind. Depending on your RAM, it *may* be the limiting factor when you attempt to overclock.
With a 400MHz FSB CPU, you should be running at least DDR266 & keep the CPU:DRAM frequency ratio at 3:4. With a 533MHz FSB CPU, you should be running at least DDR333 & keep the CPU:DRAM frequency ratio at 4:5.
Always disable ALL Spread Spectrum options when overclocking & be prepared to increase the CPU & DRAM voltages to stabilize the overclock. If the system becomes unbootable, simply reset the BIOS using the ClearCMOS jumper & start all over again.
