My rig

1.4 AMD
Soyo Dragon +
256 DDR 2100
Elsa Gfce 2 MX 400

I'm at the default 2x133 FSB and 1.75 CPU core voltage.

What should I tweak on first?
What should I do after I tweak?
What is the point of overclocking, just to have a faster pc or better game play or just cause I can?

Try pushing the FSB up a bit, to say 135/270 MHz DDR or 138MHz/276 Mhz DDR, this may require jacking the core volatage to stabilize the CPU. Start out slow, then get more aggressive as you become experienced/confident.

And yes, yes, and yes.

So I set my FSB to 140

Sandra info

CPU is 1470MHz
and at a cool 96.8 deg
core voltage is holding 1.76

I notice new apps open faster don't have any instability probs yet so what next
150?
Maybe i'll try RtCW now and report.

Board temp 120
cpu temp 108
power/aux temp 150

Is this OK?

Your temps are screwed up, mine does the same thing. Your 'Power/AUX' is the CPU. Board temp is board temp. 'CPU temp' is ambient, most likely.

Sorry for the bad news.

If you are air cooled, then it always runs like this:

CPU (hottest)
board (middle)
board/case (coolest)

With that said, 150-160F is the safe maximum temperature for Tbirds. Be careful, even 150F is pretty hot.

Above are some very good numbers. Watch your temps. These higher numbers are watercooled.
