  1. Hello,
    I just want to know how high i can OC my AMD Sempron 2200 to and still be safe.

    The M/B is a K7S41GX with a MAX FSB of 333Mhz.

    What is a safe overclocking, and would it be advisable to get extra cooling for this, as the only fan is the CPU fan.

    Thanks in Advance,
    Ph30nIX :D

    Those are 2 different chips. The Semprons up to 2800 are actually underclocked Athlon XP's. The Sempron 3100 is based on the Athlon 64 chips. Read the reviews of the 2200. Most of thos people posted how fast they got their chips to run.

    Unlocking the mobo for Ocing

    Hello i have a ASROCK K7S41GX (sometihng like that) and i've put onthe jumper caps to raise the multiplyer from default 9x to 10x. For some reason it will not work! Does any one know how i can unlock the CPU or M/B for easier Ocing, i figure it will be easier to determine the clock speed wiht 10x rather than 9x.

    Thanks in advance,

    That means the multiplier is locked. Thats how it it on most AMD chips. The only way to OC is to increase the bus speed.
