I'm new in OC scene. Anyone can guide me how to OC my system as below:-

 

ECS M925 Mobo

Pentium 4 1.5

2 x 128 PC133

40 GB HDD Maxtor (7200 rpm)

40 GB HDD Seagete (5400 rpm)

 

For your information, i'm using CPUFSB software to increase my FSB and it reach 1604Mhz but cannot more than that.

 

is there possible to me OC to 1.8 Ghz?

ECS motherboards are not intended for overclocking. They are a sub-cheap brand that does not cater to the enthusiast. The use of cheap PCB, 2-phase power circuits and SiS chipsets doesn't cut it for doing much other then surfing the web and checking email.

 

The first recommendation is to look into a better brand of mainboard. You can start by looking at Asus, ABit, Gigabyte, and DFI.

Sorry if it was harsh. No insult intended, just too stressed out at the moment and I shouldn't have reflected that online.

 

It appears that you are attempting to overclock on low-cost components. Though the OC "may" work on those boards, you won't get very far, as that is just due to the build quality of the components that you are using. The i810 is also not a good overclocking chipset. It is restricted to 100 MHz FSB and was primarily used in OEM applications such as HP's and Dell's.

 

At this point, I would still recommend saving up for some better hardware before diving in the world of overclocking.

Here'smy advice, you cant OC the intel board (oh well) but it the other one has settings in the bios for even the simplest increases try it. i doubt ull get far with that 1.5 (that core basically....sucks, sry to say but i think a northwood celeron could eat ur cookies, steal ur milk, and at the same time do somethign else bad to piss u off :))buy hey we've all gotta start OCing somewhere. One thing about it, if something dose go wrong you wont be NEARLY and hurt that somethign fried if you do it to an old chip that can be replaced cheaply by a better one than starting out and frying your new 2.4 p4 lol.

 

But at the same time i agree with the others here, save up and see if you cant get a nice new mobo now (just make sure it supports the 400 mhz fsb, the only downside that they havent mentioned is that if you get a good mobo it WONT support your PC 133 so you'll need new ram. Just something to consider.)
