older motherboard and cpu
i have an asus a8n-sli deluxe motherboard and an amd athlon 64 4000 cpu running at 2.4 ghz,just wondering if anyone else had this setup and if it is possible to overclock it to at least 2.8 ghz or better,i know it's a dinosaur and i've never overclocked anything in my life,i'm a noob and was wondering if anyone could give me some ideas.trying to learn

Yes you should be able to do something with it.
It depends on the associated components too.

Hey There!
I have the exact same board in my test Computer (see sig) , although I am new to OC'ing, I have so far been able to squeeze the 2.0gHz Processor to 2.5ghz , with it being very stable.
I have yet to push it any further, time will tell.
Some good advice though rests in my original thread.


Being a Rookie myself, I can only off so much by way of advice, however feel free to shoot me a PM if you want a step by step of what I've done so far.
