    Am I doing this right?

    I've been going by the guide on Madshrimps.com (it's in the how to section) for optimal AMD BIOS settings to overclock my rig. The first step they say is to leave your FSB at 133 and push the multiplier as high as you can (stepping up the Vcore along the way) to get the max MhZ. Then bringing down the multiplier and upping the FSB to reach that max MHZ with a higher FSB. What kind of numbers should I be shooting for with my rig below? I'm at 133x18 right now, and will take it as far as I can as I have good cooling. Let me know if I'm doing this right.

    lol that's actually wrong...you want to lower your multi first and find your max fsb. then you try to find your highest multi..of course always increasing voltage.

    read the stickies at the top of the forum. guides to overclocking

    It's not wrong, merely a different way of doing things. It also requires more patience - something that seems to be in desperately short supply around this forum...
