    Ok so I have an AMD Athlon 64 3800+ Venice Core.

    It's currently running on the BFG Nforce4 Ultra Board with 2gigs of PC 3200 Ram.

    Here is my question, I know about overclocking, but is there a good effective way of doing it. Example being:

    Proc. speed = higher clock cycle + lower multiplier

    or

    Proc. speed = lower clock cycle + higher multiplier

    Also figuring voltages in to that equation.



    On another side note, could some one please explain the what CAS latency is and how it works per say, or if there is any place out there where I can read up and educate my self.

    In general having a lower multiplier and higher fsb will result in more performance, the reason being the higher fsb speeds up more than just the cpu, it also increases bandwidth for data transfer across the chipset. However, you may find that your motherboard is the limiting factor in the overclock because it cannot support the high fsb's you want, if this is the case then you may have to fall back on upping the multiplier.
