Welcome to the Mother Board!

Being a Pentium 4 system, it can only be overclocked by way of the FSB. Check out the different settings allowed in the BIOS and then start moving the FSB up a notch or two and see what you get. It should start at 100MHz as that is the default setting for the P4. Try 105MHz and reboot. Run some benchmark progs like SiSoft SANDRA to check stability and then go for some more. Always go slow and easy. Never more than 4 or 5MHz at a time. Once the system shows some signs of instability, try setting the Vcore (CPU voltage) up one notch, from 1.5 to 1.525 or 1.550 and then test it again. Once you have it where it's nice and high on the FSB and the voltage isn't set too high ( above 1.75 for the P4 is too high I believe) and it is running stable, then you will have a nice overclocked system. 8)
