    Ok... heres my entire computer : It's a P4 3.2 (Socket 775), memory of 1024 (2 512 (3200) in dual channel), a Chaintech 6600GT, WD SATA Hard drive (200Go) and a mobo V915P. My video card is already overclocked (core from 500MHz to 550MHz and memory 1000GHz to 1100GHz) and I don't get any artifact BTW. Now I'd like to overclock my cpu but I don't really know how to do it and if I should do it (is it too risky...? is it worth it...?). My cpu temperature is about 60 celcius ; is it to hot already? Let me know what you think!

    Um I think 60C is high, but it looks like for a P4 60 is on the low side of the 'danger zone'
    Intel's site says the P4's thermal spec is 70C, I assume this is how hot they expect the CPU to perform and stay stable.

    You probably don't need to OC this CPU but how much you can, or how much there is to gain kinda depends on your MOBO, so do a little research and choose wisely

    Until you improve the CPU cooling, either with a better CPU heatsink/fan or better case cooling, you should not try to overclock the CPU.

    Results always vary and there's always some risk.
