need info

Your manual doesn't tell you much about overclocking, but it instructs you in the operations we use to overclock (setting FSB, changing multiplyer and editing memory config etc.). Like many other overclockers (except for some real die-hards and owners) I don't know what kind of mobo you have when you mention epox-xxx. I believe KT133 makes that an athlon mobo, and I guess it's a socket A processor feet. Would you tell us also first what kind of CPU you have? (thunderbird/duron Xxxx-MHz). And if possible what brand (or kind) of cooler you use. With this info available, I'm sure we could help you out.

If memory serves, your board does support multiplier manipulation.

You will need to unlock you CPU's multiplier first.

Then get back with us.
