  1. Afraid of dangers involved in OC i tried it on my old PC running P3 600Mhz with 128 MB RAM. I cahnged the BIOS settings to OC. But the is no effect. Whatever may be the settings i used in the BIOS, no changes happen. FSB remains 133 and multiplier 4.5. I changed FSB to 133 and multiplier to 11 but no change. then multiplier to 3 again no change.wat may be the reason behind this? is my procedure to overclock is right? or i m missing something?
    plz help

    multipliers are usually locked, especially in old cpu's like the p3

    some processors out there have unlocked multipliers but not many as far as i can remember

    as for the pentium d thing i don't know about that, sorry :)

    the hacker i have a pentium d 3.2 ghz and it is possible to overclock. The max speed you could overclock yours without watercooling is probaly to 3.0ghz. with water cooling probaly up to 3.6ghz.

    Try a program like clockgen. Read the website manual and find out what your motherboard is.

    clockgen is easy to use and is easy for begginers.
    My processor i can overclock it to 3.8ghz+watercooling.

    hope this helps.
