I haven't done overclock so it might be the wrong forum category for this questions. Sorry than and please move.

I checked my voltage readings using Everest, here they are
  1. CPU Core: 1.30 - 1.34V
  2. AUX: 3.49 - 3.55V
  3. +3.3V: 3.25 - 3.30V
  4. +5V: 5.28 - 5.51V
  5. -5V: -0.78 - -0.83V
  6. +5V Standby: 4.99 - 5.0V

The bios also reports a +12V as 11.3 to 11.8V.

Are those reading bad?

CPU Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHZ 64bit HT LGA 775 Prescott
Motherboard Asus P5P800S
2*512 DDR SDRAM Kingston 64bit
HD1: ExcelStore Technology J880
HD2: WesternDigital
GPU: Nvidia Geforce 6600 8xAGP 256MB
LG DVD Writer
Floppy diskette (i know its old, but still useful sometimes)
CPU FAN Arctic Cooling alpine 7 PRO
PSU EzCool 450Watt

Thanks a lot!

In spec, but low, I'd say time for an upgrade.
