Thanks b1gapl.

That tutorial will be very helpfull in my first experience with OC. Does any one knows how much can I get from my P4 2.8 Prescott with air cooling? Just to have a basis of comparison.

Thanks again for your help.

Are you using the stock heatsink, on that P4? If so, you won't get very far. Also depends on the temperature.

No, I'm using a Zalman, I don't remember the name exactly but I think it is a 7200 Cu, I'm not sure about the 7200.

I don't know the temperatures exactly, I don't know any program to monitor the temperature on linux, but back in days when I was using windows I remember that the temperatures were around 45ºC.

hmm..you have a little headroom there. I'd say 3.0GHz at least.
