Help/Advise on how to overclock my Intel Pentium 4 531 "Prescott"

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello! : )

This my first time to actually try to OC one of my desktop PC.
Kindly please advise me or help me out on how to do the OC'ing right

Here are my specs :







I'm currently running on a 500w PSU
No cooling peripherals
I only have 2 fans installed on my case. A total of 3 fans including the CPU Fan.

Thanks : )

Welcome, here you go.

If you're using the stock cooler, I'd be looking to invest in some aftermarket cooling.
Not to mention. Add your specs here.

No real idea on how to OC (my P4 OC didn't last long), but one piece of advice: avoid the stock HS at all costs. I fried my P4 that way (it was a Northwood, so it ran hotter than your Prescott, but still...)
