Having just replaced my heatsync with the Artic Freezer Pro 7, I have become intrigued by the idea of overclocking my PC as the cheapest way to improve my system's performance. Not having any money this would seem to be like a good way to increase my system's life-span and I thought that I would ask for help. I understand that I will have to replace my motherboard for something more OCing friendly, and will probably have to replace my memory too (although the ideal would be to be able to buy another 2Gb to take the memory to 4Gb, but this might be impractical). Having installed the new fan (which is brilliantly quiet) I have downloaded SpeedFan 4 (which offers FSB speed changes) but other motherboards have have their own OCing management interface for total novices like me. Having done some basic research, it would seem that achieving 3Hgz is well within the bounds of possibility (stability is more important than pushing the envelope) but it will very much depend on the cost of getting there. Any advice that you guys can offer on a choice of motherboard and the settings that I would need to look at using would be hugely appreciated.
