Hi, i'm new to the whole overclocking scene, but i have good general knowledge of hardware and bios etc.
I'm wondering how and by how much i should overclock my p4 3.4ghz HT 800fsb cpu. (bearing in mind i'm getting a c2d soon enough so slightly cooking the chip doesnt bother me (as long and i dont ruin my new mobo! )
I've never bothered before because i made the typical error of buying my pc last year from HP (i know i know... ) and therefor i knew i wouldnt be able to overclock my cpu safely, but now i've just updated my RAM, MOBO and CPU Fan... i'll link you what i have so you have a rough idea how good the stuff is and hopefully be able to tell me how much i can/should overclock to.
I upped the voltage to 1.40 and clocked it to 3.8ghz, everything was fine
upped the clock speeds to 4... everything was was
upeed it to 4.1 and after 10 seconds me pc shut down
So i've put it back to 3.5-3.8
