    it says you have 2 cpus because the p4c is hyperhreaded which allows it to work like 2 processors

    Ok it sounds as if you either have a 3.0GHz C or E CPU (most likely a C though) both of which are Hyperthreading enabled which makes the CPU act as two processors so that's why 2 CPU's are shown. The mainboard you have is either a 648F Neo or 648F Neo-L (this page should determin which one) but as the SiS chipset used doesn't have an AGP/PCI lock your overclock will be very limited but to what extent can only be determined by you trying to see what you get but yes the CPU works much better with Hyperthreading enabled than what it would with Hyperthreading disabled.

    What motherboard do you have? Typically, pre-built systems from Dell and so on don't have OC options at all.

    if you can overclock then there should be FSB and/or multiplyer adjustment options somewhere.
    my msi board has the FSB options in the advanced chipset menu. ya have to select manual changing to enable changeing the fsb by 1mhz at a time.

    You should be able to get about 400-450mhz out of the processor depending on what RAM you have. One of my mates overclocked his dads P4 3.0Ghz 800FSB to 3.5 GHz. He was using two sticks of corsair PC3700. So good luck. Overclock from the bios
