    The easiest way to overclock is by pumping up the FSB of your motherboard. For example mine is up to 140 instead of 133. that makes my CPU 12.5 X 140 = 1.75 GHz
    instead of 12.5 X 133 = 1.66 GHz

    you might have to increase the core voltage to do this, which makes more heat! you have to be careful with the heat. All the above is done in the BIOS.

    thanks for info. someone probably already asked you this somewhere goatman but did you overclock your LG burner by a firmware update?
    where did you get this from? is it possible on my burner (see sig)
    thanks

    yes it is a firmware upgrade, and I don't think you can, because the 32X and up drives use diffetent hardware... but the 32X and 40X are the same.

    I have a Gigabyte board gotta love the fact that they supply you with easytune on their site to overclock your board the easy way

    I pumped up the fsb by 10mgz and it runs like the wind it also has the system moniters included for cpu fan,system fan, power fan all with temp,s ,rpm,s and alarm settings way to go Gigabyte:cool:

    If you have an abit board.

    SoftFSB is a good way to change your fsb from within windows. Anyway i'm off to bed, it's 2:06am here.

    you can o/c with speedfan if it supports your board.

    It depends on your clock generator thats on your board robbie, see here
    for details on how to find your PLL.
    But changing the fsb bus from the bios is your best option if it is available to you.

    hey. I dont have that in the BIOS. Its from sony.

    You've got a notebook, it probably isnt the best idea to overclock your processor....
    If you want to change your fsb and its not available in the bios, open up your notebook and look for the PLL chip. Then download either cpuFSB/cpuCool or softFSB and then select your PLL and then you can change the fsb.

    But as i said, overclocking your notebook isn't recommended as it generates a lot of heat.
