(mb 16 celcius) ___________________________________________________________________________________________ Operating system: Windows xp build 2600 service pack 2 nvidia forceware 91.47 Please let me know and advise me on how to get this computer to run at anything higher than 2600+ and with ddr 400 speeds, now its just at ddr 333 as stated in the bios. which is really slow when taking the cpu speed into consideration. Any extra overcloking help is wanted and the temps mustnt go over 55 celcius. Ive also got the application to modify ram chips. so help with that would be appreciated as well.
