    Accepted Solution

    In general, you can do this by increasing the FSB of the motherboard from 200 in small steps.  You have to have good quality RAM when doing this, and you need a motherboard that locks the AGP bus (if you have one) at 66MHz and the PCI bus at 33MHz.  Any SATA controllers will also need to be locked at a specific frequency.  You may also need to decrease the HTT multiplier to keep the system stable.

    More specifics can be found in the various articles:
