Asus MB questions PLEASE HELP
I have a P4C800-E asus mother board , with a 2.6ht p4 chip and 1.25 gigs of ram. My os is xp, and I have a ati 9600xt 128mb video card.
My question is with the asus bios that are built in. Under the advanced setting there is a section that will allow you to overclock by 10-30% and set turbo or not. I have done my reading in the users manual and well that thing is written in pheasant or some *deleted*.
I have set the overclock setting to 10% and it boots up fine putting me at 2.86 , but if i go up any more I cant even boot I just get errors. I know its not to hot becuase I let it run for 10hours at 10%OC and the temp was only 26 deg. From what I have seen most people run around 25-35 deg and that is fine.
I would really like to set my bios setting to 30% OC and turbo performance, but I need some help.

the whole "turbo" thing is probably adjusting the memory timings ("cas" speeds etc)......but sometimes you cant get superfast memory timings if you are also trying to overclock....I am not sure what the "overclock" settigns do on the asus boards....but you'd probably do better just do change the settings manually
for instance set the memory to "cas 3" for starters....and then start upping the fsb to see how high you can get it....when it locks up or whatever you will probably have to reset the cmos (with the jumper by the battery) and then set the fsb to the setting you had it on b4 it locked up. Then at that point you can either start playing with the memory timings by trying to set them a little more agressively...or maybe you could try to increase the vcore SLIGHTLY to try to push the fsb up a little higher for a higher oc.
Of course you might want to do lots of reading up on OC'ing first....I am sure there are many overclocking guides online and also oc sites such as www.overclockers.com
for instance you would want to find out a little abou tmemory timings so you would know which settings are considered aggressive and which r conservative....that way you would know how to set it conservative when you are first trying to find the fsb limit the cpu will take etc.
