Help out a n00b please

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Right now I am currently overclocking my P4 3.06GHz @ 3.52GHz on stock CPU voltage (which is 1.350 volts). Right now I am hitting a wall, and I can't overclock my CPU anymore. I was wondering what CPU voltage I could increase to in order to overclock more, and still keep my CPU safe.
