Windows 7: How to overclock Pentium 4

How to overclock Pentium 4

Hello to you all .
I was wondering if anybody knows how to Overclock my Pentium 4 2.66GHz Processor under an Asus p5kpl-am SE Motherboard.
Im using 1GB Kingston Ram Memory. Memory Type: DDR2, Speed 400MHz (DDR2 800). It supports 200.0 MHz, 266.7 MHz and 400MHz.
Motherboard Always at 40șC, and Processor at 39șC. I have a 750W PSU(very good one), with one big fan and another normal size fan. and another extra fan at the back of the case.
I really don't know how to set anything, such as the voltages, FSB(i think), core, etc..
Please guide me with this
Thanks to u all.

To be honest, it isnt worth it. You have minimun ram, an older cpu, and probably an older BIOS.

I would be careful about overclocking as it can kill your computer. I have a dell P-IV and in my attempts to OC I managed to ruin a ram slot in the mobo, leaving it crippled.

your welcome.. overclocking isn't the same as you customize your theme or icon since you're playing with the hardware itself. Unless you have much knowledge about overclocking and you know what are you doing. then you can try it .

My old Asus P4P800-SE motherboard had a built in Overclocking area in the BIOS where you choose the amount of overclock you want.
I ended up running my Prescott P4 2.8Ghz at 3.65Ghz. Ran stable 24/7 but 1 game did not like the overclock, Battlefield 2 would crash to the Desktop at 3.65Ghz.

As has been said though, because your cpu is so old, I would not expect to see great real-world performance once done.

the main reason to OC is for money saving. Buy a cheaper slower CPU and OC it to match or exceed the more expensive CPU.

When I bought my Q6600 it was $185 and the Q9550 was $350.
OC'd from 2.4 to 3.06Ghz and it is now equal or faster than the Q9550 @ 2.83Ghz and is $135 cheaper. I used that $135 I saved to upgrade from a 9800GT to a GTX260.
