Re: overclocking my 4200+
i have that same cpu and it wont reach that high with stock voltage. with the zalman you should be fine up to about 1.5ish. just watch the temps.
also, try lowering the HT multiplier to 3x.
also, if you didnt lower your ram speed it is probably overclocked too much. try setting it to ddr2 667, or set it to ddr2 533 and max your cpu clock. then you can try to raise the ram back up. at 2.7 you should be able to run it at ddr2 667, and it will be overclocked a little.
but for cpu max oc, lower it to 533 and see how high you can get your chip.
my 4200 will go to about 2.9ghz
theres no way it is going to be stable at 2.7 with stock voltage IMO.
