    OK guys. Have looked all over the net to find a straight answer to my question. Can I and if so, how to overclock my P4 1.4 GHz system.

    P4 1.4 HGz, Socket 423
    ECS, M921LR MotherBoard
    640 MB SDRAM
    2-80mm Blowholes on top, 3 80mm on back, 1 80mm in front, 1 80mm blowing over CPU inside case, 1 120mm on CPU

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Well, I decided to go into the BIOS and try some things myself. And I got it to work. I figured if I changed the FSB to 110, it would do something. So I got it to go to 1540 from 1400 (14 Multiplier x 110 FSB). And its stable and no heat increase. I may try and go a little more today. But I don't know how far to go?

    Anyway, thanks for all your help anyway!!

    Hey camarophreak what mobo are you using. I have an MSI 6339 and I can only change my voltage/frquency not the bus :( . Any one have any ideas? Yeah I did up the frequency from 14 to 15 but it was stilled locked at 1400.

    I'm using the ECS M921LR, I'm using this cause it supports SDRAM and the 423 socket CPU. I want to get the Abit BW7, which supports them both as well.

    Just change the FSB and then you can overclock your P4. What speed P4 you have?

    I'm glad to see a P4 user overclock.... since your up to 1540 try for 1600 then you'll be as fast as a AMD 1 ghz...LOL

    (just kidding):D
