Default Intel P4 3.0 Northwood Overclock

Anyone have experience in overclocking these and what there limits are?

I have mine running right now at 3.3ghz @ 32'c idle and gets about as high as 47' under load.

I'm at 1.536 volts and had to downclock my ram and running at a 5:4 ratio.

Looks like you should get 230 anyway- I think you can go upwards of 1.7 on the voltage, but not sure- here's a review from pc stats that talks about overclocking them.

We (overclockers in general) go by 1M Pi calculation.
