I decided to OC my P4 a little more the other night... Stock clock is 3.0ghz and I usually just leave it on my MSI's D.O.T. setting "private," which up's it to a worthless 3.04ghz, but it seems to run better. Anyways, I started to OC and got it to 3.56ghz, and it seemed stable... then I started messing around and squeezing the juice, suddenly it jumped up to 32635.3 mhz on cupz with a fsb of 2175.7mhz!?!? My computer started running really choppy and the task manager showed a constant 85% cpu load... even with a couple of restarts it wouldn't stop acting up. I turned it off quick and left it alone for the night... although this morning it booted up just fine, but I didn't leave it on for long. I never messed with any voltages, did I do any permanent damage!? I wanted to upgrade, but not bcuz of my stupidity!! Oh, and I have a screen shot of my cpu-z showing the insane OC, but I didn't know how to insert the picture here. Any info will help, thanks guys!!

Just return all bios settings for FSB and voltages back to stock, and see where that takes you
