Help for a newbie Intel overclocker - Page 2

No you don't. According to your CPUz screen shot you have a P4 640 which is rated for 2800MHz from the factory.

Edit: I retract my statement, the 640 is rated for 3.2GHz from the factory. It's weird that your CPU changed your multi on you.

It all depends on your board, your memory, your cooling, and your power supply. If it's all pretty decent, and you got a good chip, you could probably hit 3.3.

You might have been scammed. Did you even notice the frequency in the screenshot you posted?

Most likely, you have SpeedStep enabled in BIOS. This can cause changes in CPU frequency to save power.
