    U may also want to set your video card back to regular #'s then try to overclock. After u have maxed out the cpu, then try the video card.

    the Vcore is at 1.8000 or somethin like that it only increases 4 steps its at the 3rd. I will try putting the graphics card back to stock and see if i can get some more out of the cpu that way

    I have a P4 1.9 @ 2.1 if it goes any higher it will crash after about 20 minutes into games. I don't think these chips are great for overclocking. There is a lot of luck involved with overclocking. By the looks of things you have a nice setup so I think it is most probably the CPU that is causing the limit on the overclock. :zzz: :hammer:

    Other than ya video card bein' overclocked it just maybe that the CPU just doesn't have all that much to give but overclockin' involves a lot of luck as not all CPU's (even from the same batch or stepping) will overclock the same.

    p4 2.4c will overclock quite nicely for u, up to the 3gig range. u also need a new mobo to use that cpu.

    Yah, def get an 800MHz FSB mobo and a 2.4c or a 2.8c. But you'll need new RAM too (the FSB is 200, the same as your RAM is stock, no good for o/cing). Look into 3500 or 3700. Also, is that a 400FSB you're running on or a 533? I saw a review that o/c'd a 1.6GHz Intel w/ 400FSB to 2.6. That's over 60% o/c, :wow: very impressive, so, if you dont wanna spend a whole bunch of cash right now, you might wanna pick up a cheaper CPU that is known to o/c well, and try your luck with that. Anyways, good luck, : peace2: Mista K6
