    These should help to start with just in case you don't have the driver cd and manual?

    Just remember that the FSB you set will be directly related to the multiplier you choose (ie) 200fsb x 10.5 Multiplier = 2100 CPU speed etc etc. I think these used to go to 12 or 12.5 multiplier, so best to use a higher multiplier where possible to keep the fsb speed down (170 x 12.5 gives you the same 2100) and preserve your memory from becoming a bottleneck if it doesn't like to be overclocked too much.....which will of course depend on which brand you have and what they are rated to.


    Have fun (and use decent cooling)

    Which cpu are you using? I used to run an NF7-S with a JIUHB 1700 and it was probably my favourite all time OC combo - think it ran to 2.3ish.

    You might want to consult this page as it appears the 2100 was pretty much at it's headroom at 1800 or thereabouts and had a locked multiplier.
