Hey guys I'm thinking of using some of my spare parts to throw together a 775 Pentium 4 over clocking machine I have several Pentium 4s which one would be the best? Pentium 4 3.00ghz Pentium 4 3.20ghz Pentium 4 2.80ghz And also which sort of frequency ram will I need? Yes I am new to overclocking but I have read a fair bit and i have learnt the basics to it I will be running a fan setup and I have a few aftermarket coolers but I am not sure if they will be quite adequate so what is a cheap option for an aftermarket Pentium 4 cooler like under $40 as I want this to be a cheap build where I don't spend much on it. Thanks guys Just let me know if you need more information

Ram is DDR-2
Pentium 4 OCing !!??.....All the prescotts are great chips for there time....Go with the 3.2 GHz get some DDR2 800 Mhz
Ok man will do great to see some enthusiasm from some people I think I got some 800mhz ram kicking around somewhere should I use more or less ram? I know more will make the system perform better but I am just doing this as an experiment will less ram make it clock higher as it is needing less power for more?
I am overclocking a Pentium 4 as I am satisfied with my current gaming rigs and I don't wanto risk killing anything in the pc
I will be getting all the stuff together to do this I will try my current aftermarket cooler but I doubt it will keep up Would a Pentium D cooler work as Pentium Ds run hotter then Pentium 4s
Ok mad will do can you send me a link to a site with the specs and the prices
1. Get 1 Pentium 4 CPU. 2. Download the little gem called Clockgen. 3. Find the PLL of your motherboard. 4. MAKE IT BURRRRRRRRRRRN!
I used to run my old P4 3.06 24/7 at 3.8GHz with stock cooler and stock voltage. Temps were sitting at around 60C IIRC.
Lol I wana clock this p4 to like 5ghz but it is only possible to do if I get a better cooler I'm not water cooling this sucker I can't afford it
Great way to kill processors! 5ghz here we go!!! I was thinking of making like a dry ice thing around the processor and cooling it from there lol.
XD I got a number of 3.2ghz pentium 4s so I'll try 5 ghz and if it fails well nvm XD I'll just go for another try with dif cooling and a dif processor I at least wana join the 4ghz club XD nothing under 4ghz will satisfy my needs XD
