Default Help me overclock my P4

Ok, so i overclocked my Intel P4 (2.8ghz) to 3.17 ghz (227fsb x14 multiplier)...

I ran a before and after 3DMark06 Test and noticed a very small overall difference. It started at like 2069 3DMarks (lol) and went up to 2120 (lol again)... Shouldnt I be getting a larger differnce?

my cpu score was like 860 and went up to 923...


All I have done to overclock is raise my fsb to 227 (from 204) If I go any higher, it doesnt pass Prime95... even if I raise my vdimm and Vcore... What should I try next?

Overclocking the CPU will yield VERY LITTLE gain on the 3dmark score.

How about OC'ing the GPU?


What can I do to get a better/higher OC?

It usually will make a change, but your rig is too crappy.
