I need help Overclocking my Athlon T-Bird socket A 750MHz with ASUS A7V motherboard without soldering something to the hardware.
Is it possible?
Since this is my 1st Overclocking attempt I'm not ready to risk damaging my only computer with my clumsy hands and a hot soldering iron.

Thanks to anyone who can help.

According to:

http://www6.tomshardware.com/howto/00q3/000808/

(which is the DEFINITIVE site for overclocking information) you need to modify the motherboard for this.

Enlist an experienced friend and then you can blame him if things go badly. ;-)

After I have connected the L1 bridges,
Can I set the FSB, Multipliet and voltage in the BIOS or do I need to set the Jumpers on the Motherboard.
Also, what settings should I test first?
Do I increase the voltage, then try increasing the multiplier or vice versa?

Those links I posted gave very detailed info for the MB in question, I believe all the info he needed can be found there.
There was a lack of feedback from user

As long as we're jockeying for position, I'll just point out that the URL I referenced FIRST, shows and tells EXACTLY how to mod this motherboard the way the user asked about.  There is not other way for this model than to mod the hardware.

Well jhance, please read the question AGAIN or maybe for the first time , the user clearly stated "I'm not ready to risk damaging my only computer with my clumsy  hands and a hot soldering iron."
The link you posted stated you must have a certain skill with a soldering iron or you may render the MB useless.

The links I posted doesn't say anything abount needing to use a soldering iron, and the instructions are clearly posted.

Give jhance the points, I wouldn't want to be responable for hurting his ego, he feels any question he make a post on should always be his and who am I to stand in the great man's way.
