Help Me oc my 9NPA+ Ultra
I have 3000+ Winchester
768mb of PC 3200 ram
and a X700 Pro Saphire Video card

Want should I do to tweak it?

Dunno what have you tried? you might want to give some more specifics such as make of ram, powersupply opersting system etc etc for people to be able to give you much advice, if its some generic ram and power supply they might limit the overclocks you maybe able to acheive

It is Corsair ValueSelect Ram. I am running WinXP Pro. My PSU is an Antec Tru 420w.

Ok so what exactly you wanting to tweak, you mean overclock? what sort of cooling do you have?

I have a stock heatsink. I really just want to oc my cpu and maybe the ram a little. I get low temps though, around 83 F

Pay attention to the voltage (idle and load) on your 12V line. As it begins to decrease below 12V, the amperage draw will increase correspondingly, which doesn't tend to be a Good Thing.

I'm not sure about the specifics of your particular Antec, but I have heard in the past that their higher-powered models put too much of that power on the 5V rail, where it will do you little good.

Seeing as how I don't own a A64, I suppose the best place to start is to disable Cool'n'Quiet, lower your memory and HTT multipliers to PC2700 and (3x?) settings, and see how high you can increase your "FSB"? And take it easy with the voltage?
