I have been messing around with this cpu along with a new PC Chips socket 478 motherboard I purchased. I have managed a clock speed of 1.87GHz so far. I know this is not that impressive, but it with a P4 Willamette core that is not known for its overclockability. I am going to see if I can push this puppy a little farther, and test it for a stable overclock later.<br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/3/3e/3e34fc3c_vbattach34007.bmp"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.overclock.net/3/3e/525x525px-LL-3e34fc3c_vbattach34007.jpeg" style="width:525px;height:421px;"></a>

Well I got it to 2017MHz before my system freaked. That is pretty impressive really. A 44% overclock on a processor that many thought I would be lucky to get a 200MHz overclock on. I will post the pictures later, burn it and edit it on my other computer so they will have a little more clarity.

Post some pics and keep us updated, I'm interested since I have a P4 Socket 478 2.8 Prescott in my backup PC. I'm just wondering if I should buy that mobo since this PC is stuck with PCI, no AGP at all =/

Here is a picture of the 2012MHz overclock suicide run I did. Unfortunately the picture quality is not any better. Crap going in is still crap coming out I guess. Currently running OCCT to test stability at 1870MHz. <br />

The motherboard is decent and for the price it has decent overclocking options. It does not have a lot of memory options unfortunately. You can set the memory Cas Latency to 2/2.5/3 and you can set the command rate to 1T/2T. I really have not messed with the voltages, so I can not say how much if any manipulation you have there. Will let you know how the OCCT test turns out too. I folded at 1870MHz for the last 12 hours, but I know that is not a great test but it is encouraging.<br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/c/c0/c077a179_vbattach34040.png"><img src="http://www.overclock.net/image/id/616421/width/525/height/525/flags/LL"></a>

I ran OCCT at 1870MHz and I was successful. There is not any voltage options on this motherboard. Basically you can manipulate the few things I stated above on the memory and you can change the FSB and memory ratio. So it has really basic options for overclocking. What do you expect for $35 though? It has proven a solid little board, and the willamette has overclocked nicely with it. The extra GHz do nothing really to improve the performance of the willamette though. My SuperPi time at 1M is 1 min 49 secs with the 1870MHz, 1:1 ratio (133MHz:133MHz), 1T command rate and a Cas Latency of 2. I think at stock it was 2 mins 02 secs for the same calculation.<br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/c/cb/cbf3fd8c_vbattach34050.bmp"><img src="http://www.overclock.net/image/id/616413/width/525/height/525/flags/LL"></a>
