    ahem,
    -Motherboard Manufacturer and Model :Emachines E627 , aMD ATHLONG TF-20 (1.6GHZ cpu)
    -Bios Revision :
    -Bios Type :

    You'll be better off looking for Software Based Overclocking.

    Search for SetFSB.

    Try to identify your Clock Generator.

    I have been looking for software based overclocking tools... tried alot of them problem is i dont know my clock generator. Where would i find that? some tools i looked at was saying that i had to open up the laptop and get a number off of my MB and put it in... i wanted to try clockgen but its temporarly unavailable but i'll give that one a try too.

    Use SetFSB->Click Diagnosis->Chose PLL diagnosis in the Clock Generator field-> Check Ultra->Click GetFSB.

    Get a Screen Shot of that and Post it.

    Some Clock Generators have Vender Data @0x07h and @0x08h, if I've seen your before I maybe able to tell you what it is.

    Sorry, I don't know that Clock Generator, I don't think it's ICS OR RTM so you could try the other ones in SetFSB.

    I'd say you'd have to pull it apart and find the clock chip:-(

    I looked a bit harder, I'm thinking your Clock Generator is Silego, maybe slg8sp626v.

    I'm not sure, only way to be %100 is pull it down and look SLG***

    So try all the SLGxxxx in SetFSB.

    Glad that worked for you, I'd say you maybe able to push it past 200Mhz FSB but you may need to loosen the Timing for your Ram.

    Checkout SPDTOOL.

    Also note that your SLGxxx controls the Clock of the ATI IGP, so you maybe overclocking you Graphics, looking at the DataSheet, you can change the SRC_ for the IGP, but I don't know how SetFSB deals with that.

    There is always DANGER with OverClocking, WATCH YOUR HEAT/TEMPS:eek:

    Try to use RMClock to UnderVolt your CPU, the lower the Voltage the better. Try lowering by .0025mv at a time and run a stress test for 45min, until you find the LOWEST Voltage you can run without BSOD. Less Voltage=Less Heat, most of the time.

    I usually have CPU-Z up and running when i do the OC, and from what CPU-Z tells me (hope it aint lying) my cpu does it 1800 after i OC and i guess thats not my IGP

    IGP = Integrated Graphic Processor, your video card.
