I thinkif your processor has a t-bread core that you can go right into the BIOS and OC it a little. I could be wrong tho, i think i remember hearing, or reading, that somewhere

there are two different AMDs thoroughbred and palomino but i dont think that matters the A7N8X is supossed to unlock your processor so you just lower the miltiplier and raise the FSB and voltahe to the CPU and memory :smack:

ok.... Vicious buddy...
Before ya actually begin trying to overclock your processor you need to put a lil thought into this...

First thing ya need to do is find out what kind overclocking really means and how it relates to the parts of a PC before you worry about how to overclock...
Best way to do this is to browse through these forums for a week or so... and then go to the OverclockersClub.com homepage and click on each of the links in the "Affiliates" column and read up some more on the details of overclocking...

Next you need to find out what kind of equipment you have in front of you in terms of your case, motherboard, processor, etc....

Finally put all that you have found out together and you will be able to overclock your computer to a satisfying result without irreversably damaging expensive parts... :D

I hate how easy that is for everyone else. It makes me wonder if you can unlock some BIOS's? Because me and a friend and all my work computers have locked settings. There is no simply going in and changing the craped settings in BIOS.
