How high should I overclock?

I have a shuttle ak31 3.1, ok at ocing, with a good amount of cooling on it, 2 case fans, an athlon 1700, 256MB ddr 2100 kingston, and a volcano 7(just regular version) cpu cooler. I don't really want to unlock the cpu, i am to new at this. Safety is a big thing for me. I don't want to come CLOSE to damaging one of these devices. I just wanted to know how high do you think I should overclock my FSB. Will going from 133 to 140 be ok? Or can i go higher than that?

Generaly, depending upon what cards you use in your system, safely you can overclock to around 145fsb- and higher- remember, you can always pull the cmos battery and set it back.

The major thing is to watch your temps!

Rollydog, so as to be a bit more helpfull...

upping the FSB gradually isn't a worry.

eventually you'll hit a point where something won't work right or windoze will crash, not boot, etc...

at that point, just back off a little.


yes, watch your temps. high temps = instability.

i have never damaged anything, so don't worry too much, it's not real likely if you're carefull.

swooshing feet on carpet and poking your RAM,
forgetting to plug in the CPU fan,
Those are common errors that = damage.
they are avoided thru caution, common sense, and patience.

Good Luck!

The most common way people damage there system from overclocking is rushing.

Take your time.

Also to quote kat "Knoledge is the key to a sucsesfull overclock"

Or as I would put it "if you dont know what your doing find out what you should be before you do something you shouldnt"

Now that was a garbled sentence and a half.
