How can I overclock my CPU speed

To over clock your CPU changes will have to be made to either your CMOS settings or switchs/jumpers on the mother board. This depends on the make and model of your desktop PC. I would not suggest doing this.

Unfortunately, your answer is not detailed enough. I need more information on overclocking than this, but thanks anyway.

Overclocking your CPU usually requires either going into the advanced setting of your BIOS, or setting jumpers on your motherboard.

For example You'd need to change the jumpers for a chip on the motherboard of an ASUS P5A Super7 Motherboard. Youwould definitely want to have your motherboard manual nearby as reference.

In overclocking your motherboard, you need to know two things: the bus speed of your mainboard and the mulitplier for example:

If your mainboard bus speed is 100MHz and the Current speed of your CPU is 500MHz, the multiplier is a factor of 5.0
to overclock your CPU you's have to increase the multiplier to like 5.5 or higher.

I will advise you that overclocking voids any warranty on your CPU and your system canbecome unstable if you do...only AMD chips and Celerons seem to handle overclocking well.

More info: go to www.techtv.com
Click on search, then Techtv search.
type "overclocking" (no quotes) and click go..
you'll get some useful information...


oh yeah: I don't believe that there is any overclocking software out there...but I could be wrong.
