  1. I have:

    2GB ram g.skill 5-5-5-10
    core 2 duo E6400
    geforce 7900GT

    and my idle temp is usually around 27C load around 35-38C

    and can anyone explain overclocking a little? how exactly? from what I've read you incrase the FSB by small increments and if it gets unstable, add a little voltage til it's stable and repeat? or are there other ways to overclock. like by the multiplyer and stuff.

    Okay, I tried overclocking and all. But no matter what I do I cannot get the FSB past 300Mhz, If I go to 305 or higher it doesn't boot up and I have to reset the CMOS. Even If i up the voltage by .1V, at 300MHz FSB I have 2.4GHz and 900Mhz on ram
