Your post is not unlike the story of blindfolding people and asking them to describe the elephant. You hand one person a tail, then other the nose etc.

Too bad you didn't tell what machine this board was in, the CPU make/model and more.

As it stands, the forum is blindfolded.

If you have no manual, then visit NEC support website and navigate there for mtrbd. support and info. If you're lucky, maybe the case has a decal inside. -OR- the mtrbd. has silk-screened labeling IDing what the jumpers do. Its been my experience, vendors like NEC, Sony, IBM(OEM's) tend to *not* make their mtrbds. that OC friendly, maybe the next level but no wild stuff. Google for possible reference to the mtrbd. model or product # you gave.

good luck -----Willy Happy

WHY?

In reply to: Jumper settings for NEC motherboard

what's your current processor/speed? It's only safe to overclock 10%, 20% maybe. You won't really notice the difference. Find a mobo that will fit, for a higher processor [probably not as I think yours has a riser card]. Are you actually trying to install a faster processor?
