    Buy a decent motherboard. I started with a P4P800-VM motherboard that I got for like $60 and couldn't get over 3.2ghz out of my 3.0 prescott. I now have a P4P800-SE and I easly got 3.5Ghz and I'm limited to my memory speed. Not to mention the amount of heat this thing puts out :noes:

    Select JumperFree Configuration under the Advanced menu

    Proceed to overclock by changing this from Standard to Manual

    Changing the FSB from 200Mhz to 233Mhz turned my 3.0Ghz CPU to 3.5Ghz CPU. Ignore the 400 Mhz DRAM Freq. because it really not 400 Mhz, it's acutally 466 due to a 1:1 FSB ratio. So make sure the memory you have is decent or your going to have strange results.

    Hit F10 to enjoy your new speed :)
