    Yeah how much should i overclock my P4 2.4 ghz 533, with stock cooling (2 case fans and cpu heatsink+fan) ?:?:

    with stock cooling? I wouldn't OC it much at all with stock cooling

    but as long as you keep the OC low enough that you don't need to raise the voltage then you might be OK

    if you're going to OC with a stock HSF at least replace the stock TIM with some Arctic Silver 3 and make sure your case cooling is adequate. ...but I'd recommend that you look into getting a good HSF if you want to do any serious OC

    *btw, what are your current temps with stock speeds?

    MY CPU temp is around 40.0 degrees celcius (give or take) and my CPU fan runs at about 2600rpm.....unless the CPU Is hotter then the fan goes faster (not much) is that wat u wanted to know?! :cheers:

    kinda, I guess I should have been clearer ...I meant temps while the CPU is under max load

    I've seen temps jump quite a bit from idle to max ...your max temp is what will make the difference

    each cpu is different and they all have different limits

    it's been a while since I messed with a Intel chip, but this is what I recommend...
    increase the FSB gradually (in the BIOS), running benchmarks each time to ensure stability until:
    a) it becomes unstable
    -or-
    b) the max temp goes up too much (which can be fixed by getting a better cooling solution)

    there are enough precautions built into CPUs and mobo's these days that you are not likely to damage the CPU by OC it
