callin peeps that know bout Computers
« on: April 27, 2002, 09:41:27 PM »
Just wantin to know how do i 1) over clock my computer internally (i.e. by openin up the box and actually playin with switches on the mother board) and 2.) tweakin it by either usin programs or jus by deletin shit off it.
  I got a Amd 1900xp, G-Force 2 Ti (64ddr), S/Blaster Live 5.1, 512ddr ram.
  cuz i jus got it (saved up for bout 6 months) n' now wantin to tweak it to it's full potential. I play a lot of game (Mostly Counter Strike tho) on it, that need a fast computer, and so jus wantin to know what i can do to it.


Anyway, if u know some web sites to go to, or know what to do, jus make a post, cuz i know when u get a comp from a shop they limit it's potential for some fucked up reason...any help will be appreciated...peace

Theres an XP processor overclocking guide here : http://www4.tomshardware.com/howto/01q4/011112/index.html<-- he actually overclocks a 1900+ CPU to a 2000+, however it involves some pretty nasty surgery which I'm pretty sure is going to void your Warranty and possibly break your new machine if you get it wrong !

Make sure you have installed the latest nvidia drivers v28.32 <--- from http://www.nvidia.com

You could try overclocking your GFX, look for a util called Nvmax which makes tweaking the performance nice and easy, you might need extra cooling to make this work in a stable manner.  There is a guide in the articles here : http://www.tweak3d.net/ once again this is probably a Warranty void problem and again it is possible you could break your graphics card :(  They also list other tweaks there that might help, a lot of these are OS dependant, you didn't mention what your using.

Defrag your hard drive.

Download 3dmark from http://www.madonion.com/ run a benchmark with it now and after any mods, your results are stored on their server so you can see if your tweaks are working and how they compare to people with the same hardware.

That should keep u busy for a bit  ;D

Just rememberd some other things that are worth doing...

Install the latest Via AGP 4in1 drivers. (assuming your motherboard is via based, I have a feeling all the XP's are at the moment).

Flash your machine with the latest BIOS from the motherboard manufacturer, follow their website instructions for this.

Optimize your BIOS settings : http://www.rojakpot.com/Speed_Demonz/BIOS_Guide/BIOS_Guide_Index.htm

Run windows update install critical updates, probably won't speed up your machine but may save you hassle in the future.

Install latests counterstrike/halflife updates.  I think a new CS version came out last week.

Yeah like elneckio says.

But also, make sure your hard drive is fast (ATA100 or 133, <10ms access). Hard drives are a big bottleneck (especially because the swap file lives there) and if you're going to increase the processor make sure you can feed it fast enough. Did the trick for me;)

You might also consider getting a faster GFX card if you want to totally max your system but a GF2 with a 2GHz machine should be okay for most things currently.

like elneckio said get all the latest drivers +via 4in one drivers
its also important to know which motherboard u have.
coz overclocking dependds upon the 1mhz speed increments u can/cannot give to ur mobo.
ur geforce 2 ti card shld prolly do fine.but i recommend gettin ur gfx card tested(usin 3d mark 2001 form madonion)if the score drops below 1600 level get a new gfx card asap.
nex to the oveclocking part.beforeu overclock pls tell me how many fans u have on ur pc?
it is reecommended tht u get an extra fan(thermocooler etc.)
an then u overclock.
on most new mobos overclocking for an amd athlon xp is simple.
u can use ur bios itself to overclock it.an also an xp 1900+can b overclocked upto 2000mhz without havin any probs(1900 clock speed is sumthing like 1.83ghz if i am correct).
but this is jus a recommended limit u can easily push it upto ~2300 if u have a cooling machine(amd tends to heat up more than a p4)but i dont think tht would be a problem.
but b4 u do any of the stuff please turn ur pc on continuosly for at least 50 hours(to ensure none of the parts esp processor doesent get burned out)but if u have done this then ur pc is certified for overclocking.
also try to read as many articles on overclocking as possible.
all tha best
pz
to infinity and beyond
