I've messed around with bios a few times and I've been unsuccessful
Overclocking my CPU...Would anyone have any suggestions for me...I've tried
tampering with fsb and voltage, just fsb, ram timings, but i haven't had any
luck coming up with the right settings...Now i'm not a computer guru or
anything and that's probably have the reason but I was hoping to OC this
chip.  Oh, and i've tried Ntune and that hasn't worked as well.
Even if someone with a very similar system to let me know what they have for
bios settings to help??

Tnx in advance

All you should need to do is to raise the FSB and the voltage depending on
how much you want to overclock. A reasonable speed would be 2200MHz
(11x200), basically a 3200+ speed. I'd start by raising vcore to 1.85v and
FSB to 200. If it boots there, start lowering vcore til it won't work.
Hopefully you have a decent cooler (not stock). Use a boot cd or floppy
when testing so you won't corrupt the HD.
