Hey, well i got my PC about 2 years ago, and i'm sick of the slowish speeds and i REALLY want to know if i can OC my:

- AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3500+

- NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE 256.0 MB

I know its a really poor Operating speed, and thats basically only decent for internet browsing since my Ge Force 6150 LE is Intergrated. So if you can see from my point of view i could do with the extra speeds lol.

**P.S** I heard its possible to get this processor to around 2.4 GH'z, but im a bit sceptical of that

Please Reply to me ASAP

Hope this has helped you out.

An OC shouldn't be necessary with that chip. My girlfriend's PC has an Athlon64 3000+ running at 2.0Ghz and plows through virtually everything we throw at it.

Re: IS OC Possible on a AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3500+

yeah my mate says its a really decent chip for whati paid for it. But i know it can handlemost decent games out there (Counter Strike: Source, Half-life 2 etc) But i could really do with a little bit extra FPS.
I get around 35FPS On a 1280x 1024 Reso At highest quality and usng Bloom maps with HDR.
But i was really wondering if my FPS would increase A little if at all if i OC'd my system.

This help forum rocks btw, its been a great help so far. Anymore info bout my question will be a fantastic help =)

Once again thanks for the people who replied to this thread.

Just keep raising the HTT until your system becomes unstable (freezes, BSOD's) and if you want to go further, up the vcore slightly. Keep an eye on your temp. If you have cheapo RAM modules, you may want to put them on a divider to prevent them holding back your OC on the cpu.
You should find the psu wattage on a sticker on the side of it. 240v is only the input voltage :).
