    I was wondering if guys know how far i can safely push the voltage on a p4 2.4 gHz cpu. I was able to achieve 3.12gHz with a increase in the voltage to 1.575 volts. It was running real nice and stable their. Can I increase my voltage a little more to sqeeze some more speed out or not. I dont want to fry my cpu :)

    General rule of thumb for a P4 (to keep things safe) is don't exceed 1.7 vcore and you should be okay. Going over 1.7v and you could risk the notorious sudden p4 death syndrome (system will become increasingly unstable over a period of time even running at stock speeds. This is how I lost my previous 2.53ghz proc.)
