question about bios setting...

i recently updated my bios. I have an old P3 550. The new bios has a setting "Main Clock Speed" and the options "normal" (100mhz) and "103mhz". When I set it to 103mhz, windows reads my processor as running at 566mhz instead of 551. It gives a small performance increase, but not enough to risk damaging my PC as I can't upgrade right now. Would it be safe to set it to 103mhz and leave it? I don't have "xp-erience" ;) with overclocking. Thanks for any help.

When the manufacturer gives you an option like that you can be sure it's safe... 15mhz is pretty safe...

Try getting 218mhz more :)... Now that's NOT safe...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
