Motherboard and overclocking


Hi folks,

I'm planning to build a AMD Athlon64 dualcore 4000+ (cache 2048KB), socket AM2, box and do overclocking.

Motherboard selection :

According to
http://www2.amd.com/us-en/recmobo/Re...~73649,00.html

I preliminary select;
Asus
M2NPV-MX/VM
http://www.asus.com/products4.aspx?m...=3&l2=101&l3=0

http://usa.asus.com/products4.aspx?m...=3&l2=101&l3=0

OR

M2N-SLI Deluxe
http://usa.asus.com/products4.aspx?m...=3&l2=101&l3=0


Gigabyte
========
GA-M51GM-S2G/GA-M55PLUS-S3G
http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/...e=GA-M51GM-S2G

http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/...GA-M55plus-S3G

OR
GA-M57SLI-S4
http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/...e=GA-M57SLI-S4

Please provide some advice, (economical preferred, IF POSSIBLE). TIA

I heard Gigabyte more suitable for "overclocking". Would it be correct?


This is my 1st time doing overclocking. I found following steps on Internet searching;
Enter BIOS during startup PC. Select the Bios Features Setup -> Modify CPU Host Bus Frequency, External Clock (PCI). -> In CPU Core section find the Multiple Bus Frequency or Multiplier factor and modify the value of the CPU Multiplier -> save the changes to the CMOS and exit.

1) Whether the forgoing steps are correct?
2) What is FSB (Front Side Bus) speed of motherboard. How to find it?

Advice would be appreacited. TIA


B.R.

My advice is that you read up on overclocking before doing anything. You should be prepared to throw away any parts you burn up, as the manufacturers accept no returns on failed equipment if it has been overclocked. It is quite easy to permanently damage equipment when experimenting with overclocking; I hope you can afford it.

There is no real reason to overclock. Current components are already faster than any application requirement.
