    Hey everone this is my first post here...

    ... anyway straight to the point, what is the maximum i could over clock my pentium 4 2.8GHz, using only buyable cooling systems, it would be great if i could get 3GHz out of it.

    if i could get 3GHz, what cooler would you most recommend.

    thanks,

    getting an extra 200 mz out of it shouldn't be too much of a strain...but the only P's I've oc were p3...then i switched to amd, and there i stayed

    the last pentiums i worked with were p3's you would have to ask someone a bit more current on the pentiums, but i wouldn't think it wouldn't be too hard it you have good cooling and none of you periphials hold you back...like the nic

    You should have absolutely NO problems reaching 3ghz with stock intel HSF combo that came with your proc (assuming you bought the boxed version) ... Infact, you should be able to get upwards of an extra 400mhz out of it by upping the voltage from 1.525 to 1.65, with minimal rise in heat (5 - 8 degree's celcius under heavy load). I'd recommend a hsf for ya but I'm currently looking for that same info for my 2.53 :)

    200 is referring to 200MHz, your processor is clocked at a default of 2800MHz - just to clear that up for you.
