    If your motherboard doesn't have PCI/AGP lock then you aren't going to get very far, but since you haven't told us what motherboard you have...

    To be honest I think that you will struggle to get any decent overclocking out of that chip anyway.

    Not to sound harsh, but this forum and everyother computer forum is full and i mean full fo threads like this, please use teh search, you basically go to the bios and up the front side bus (fsb) make sure you dont overclock too far depends on yr memory and mobo but i doubt it has a pci/agp lock. I think you will be able to squeeze 7 mhz outta yr comp lol, post up ry spec and we will help btu people reading this please use the search, there are plenty of guides on forums if not this one.

    You need to familiarise yourself with our forum rules regarding Signature Sizes ASAP Toxcity ;)

    If you want to tell everybody all that information... we have a proper 'Introductions' forum in which you can do so ;)

    If i remember right, Intel locked their multiplier tighter than a ducks dirt box in those days. If i'm right, and i'm not sure, you got no chance to overclock.

    If you don't know the motherboard, and 930Mhz suggests an old one, then there is a risk of damage if you tinker with the voltage to the cpu. Not knowng the motherboard may mean not knowing the CPU socket or chipset, and that could set your home smoke alarms off.

    You need to know wether you can upgrade the fan to reduce the extra thermal energy that you get with overclocking, and wether the motherboard can take the increase.

    If you have the original case, you may need to replace it, it won't be up to thermal specs, and that will cause major problems.

    If this is your first attempt at overclocking, and you don't know what your doing, then you must research the subject. Overclocking without knowing what your doing may cost you a computer. What ever you do, You must identify the motherboard so you can research the probability of things going poof

    All these sites are real vague, so if i posted my specs up could someone tell me the basics/where to start or possibly post a link to somewhere that would be useful to MY setup!

    Pentium 4 prescott socket 478 3.0ghz
    MSI 865PE Neo 2 Mobo
    2 X 512MB DDR (think sdram)
    nVIDIA fx5500 256MB (G Card)
    oh.... if this helps, my psu : Novatech WINPOWER 600Watt

    If you mean overclocking, then Intel supply this.

    Intel overclocking

    There is a list of motherboards that can be oveclocked, and the 865Pearl is amongst them. You have a socket 478 though, and Intel have only just started to unlock the multipliers, so your guess is as good as mine wether yours is locked or not.

    It's a wonderful piece of kit, and the picture has tabs you can press to view it's capabilities.
