  1. Game runs good with full detail on for all settings.

    My PC:

    AMD Athlon XP 3200+ (Socket A processor 32 bit)

    BFG Nvidia 7800GS Video Card 256MB memory

    2GB Kingston Hyper-X RAM

    I'm surprised my old rig can run this game. I've been playing around with the "Steel Torrent" scenario.

    What's with the knocked down trees that melt.

    It was neat to see one of my panzer crews who lost their tank go climb in an abandoned T-34/85. Great stuff!

    You need to record you room temperature and later monitor it, as the above procedure only certified the overclock for your current temperature (obviously). In general you want to crank up heating in that room to the highest it will get in summer for the duration of this test, so that you can forget about it later.

    Thanks, Redwolf. I'll give this a go. With TOW and CMSF on the horizon, my processor needs a boost.
  3. You guys are the best! I'm overclocked! Ha ha!

    The first time I tried doing this, I was messing with the multiplier factors. I left that setting alone and just unlocked the settings and upped the voltages.

    Schrullenhaft - Your directions worked great. Thanks so much. I'll see how the machine runs for awhile with the increased voltages, but so far so good.

    Then, make sure you set a memory divider first so that you only overclock your CPU and not your memory.

    What CPU frequency/volts are you setting when you say it won't boot. And what is "won't book", anyway? No POST?

    Hi Redwolf,

    It seems to go all the way through the boot process and then goes black and starts booting all over again. I had a busy night last night, so I didn't get to check back and see who posted to this thread. I will check that PCI/AGP lock setting this evening.

    How do I set a memory divider?

    Thanks for your help.

  5. I've tried my hand at overclocking my machine and have been unsuccessful. I thought my PC was overclocking material, but it seems that whatever I try to do just makes the PC unstable, it won't boot up. The motherboard's BIOS does allow for manual settings to be applied and even has an overclock on the fly command key, but anything I change just results in my PC going into an endless loop when it tries to boot up.

    I'm going to list my system specs in this thread and ask anyone in the know for suggestions.

    Thanks in advance for any feedback.

    My System:

    ABit AN7 Motherboard

    AMD Athlon XP 3200+ Processor

    2GB Kingston Hyper-X RAM DDR400

    BFG Nvidia 7800GS AGP 256MB

    Vantec Stealth 520W Power Supply

    That would be good to know. My processor is an AMD Athlon XP 3200+ - 2.2GHz. My video card and memory all surpass their respective specs, but the processor is a bit weak.
