Default Overclocking a p4 fow far can you go?

I recently was handed a pentium 4 socket 478 computer with a 1.7ghz processor. i already upgraded the ram to a gig and overclocked it. This rig will only be used for a DJ/Server computer at my fraternity house and now also has two 160GB in RAID. So whats left is a pretty pathetic processor, BUT it allows you to overclock it up to 2.4Ghz which is bareable.

So my question is if i purchase a Pentium 4 2.4Ghz socket 478 400Mhz fsb will i be able to overclock That past 2.4Ghz? that is the max offered that fits the fsb of the motherboard. i am hesitant to purchase bacause the highest option i have to overclock and the fastest for sale are the same speed.

this is my first time using this forum and hope to use it from now on.

If you buy it at 2.4 ghz, you will be able to oc it past that, assuming proper cooling.

Out of curiosity, why did you bother with raided disks for a music server?
