That P4 2.8GHz is a socket 478. If you have the stock Fan and Heatsink on that CPU, I wouldn't recommend attempting any OCing. If you upgrade the FAN & HS you could. That CPU is stable up to 3.4GHz. The Dynamic overclocking Utility from MSI is pretty good.

you may want to get some more, and faster ram while you are there 256mb is just enough to run xp smoothly.


yeah, that is the heatsink. get some artic silver 5 thermal compound as well. This is said to be the best air cooled heatsink http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...right_120.html (its the top one. you need to get a 120mm fan seperatley and the thermal compund.

Your ram will bottleneck and you wouldnt likely see the difference between your 2.8 and intel's top end processor
