512mb pc2700 mushkin 333 mhz
Thermaltake Volcano 9 Cooler

BIOS settings
Spread spectrum @ +0.25
CPU FSB clock @ 133
CPU Ratio @ AUTO
CPU Vcore @ AUTO
DDR Voltage @ AUTO
AGP Voltage @ AUTO
the latter options can be changed but i just don't know what to change them to, and so thats why i'm serching for a good newbee

There are two forums I go to other than this one, which I find very very good.

From you system specs, you should try running your FSB at 166, you will need to raise the cpu voltage, just keep an eye on system temps when doing so. Set memory to HCLK, you might also need to rais the votlage of that also. If you get that going nice and stable at 166, then you could slowly try to rais the FSB even more. To get best performance, its finding the highest stable FSB first with the highest multiplayer second. The 2100+ TB is a good overclocker, so you shouldnt have much problem overclocking, most important things are, heat and stablity, so watch those and play around a bit and use Sandra2003 to test performance at each stage so you can see which will give you the best performance :afro:

Oh and take a big bag of luck with you also, that helps ;)
