You might fair better at getting an answer by posting this question in the Computer Performance Forum. I do not overclock computers and do not recommend it. I did a long time ago and regretted it. Larry

Well you can raise the FSB and / or change the multiplier. the 800 is probably locked, so you will need to close the L1 bridges on the cpu with a HD pencil. This will "unlock" the cpu and enable multiplier changes. Of course, a good cooler is an absolute must, and some case ventilation will help. Do so @ your own risk, Tbirds run hot and with a inferior cooler will have a short life span when overclocking.
