You're not going to be able to overclock that P4 very far at all without heating upgrades. I think it's a northwood core, and those suckers aren't exactly legendary for overclocking. The first thing you should do to increase performance is maybe run Spybot Search & Destroy and kill most of your background spyware.

DFI is the best for overclocking (AMD). Biostar won't go very far in comparison. You should get a 3700+, it only cost about $13 more.

ASUS and MSI are also good.

I guess 'good' is relative. Huge cooling setups isn't exactly economical. Maybe I'm spoiled by running a 630mhz overclock with stock cooling? Who knows. Either way...

gigabyte and chaintech are pretty good overclockers too, and budget mobos.

The processor used in "The 5GHz Project" http://www.tomshardware.com/2003/12/...ect/index.html was a northwood core.

the northwood they used in that thing was under liquid nitrogen. case closed... They just get to hot unless you plan on spending at least $200 on a water cooling setup.
