    This is a preety high end PC, higher then even mine, but then again, I M sure he is using stock cooling, at which Overclocking is not recomended

    The P4 3.2E Prescott can be easily overclocked to 3.6 GHz but not with Stock intel cooler

    This PC is already hign end, tell your friend not to overclock, this will do anything he wants for the next 3 years

    There's no set limit as to how much u can clock. No two processors clock alike even the ones with the same features etc. Investing in a better cooling solution will reduce chances of damage to ur CPU and will allow u to overclock more. With a Liquid nitrogen cooling like prometeia u can overclock a 2.8G Intel to insane speeds like 4Ghz etc. So basically it depends on cooling, temperatures and Mobo.

    Liguid Nitrogen, is it even available in India, if it is let me guess it costs Rs 30,000

    off to "never ever" land
    ooo yess
    if u got the cash thats the best method
    specially if ur overclockin beyond limits
    u definitely need a water coolin solution
    probably be able to clcok it to 3.6 ghz + with this
    but then again like blade said theres no set limit
    its all trial and error

    @gxsaurav: It might be available but whos gonna handle it lol ! However finding a suitable compressor is difficult. A comany Chip Con makes such cooling solutions.

    @bhalchandra: You might find the solution u r looking for @ primeabbg. They do stock ThermalTake products.

    I thought asus come with its own overclocking software so through it i guess you can overclock the mobo and other till a certain safe stage no need to wory abt extra cooling

    But if you are doing anything a litlle more extreme then do opt in for extra cooling fans and thermal paste and also consider water cooling
    There are quite a few sites explaining them as well selling them!!

    Hey guys just found something =>

    Tom’s Hardware reports that Asus has finally started including BIOS that allow for some tweaking of

    the Socket 775 motherboards. Proving to nay sayers that state that Pentium is too difficult to

    overclock, tweak, etc, this out to have proud new Asus owners seeing just how far they can push

    things on their new boards.



    It can finally be done. Asus now delivers BIOS versions with its Socket 775 motherboards that allow

    you to tweak Pentium 4 Prescott multipliers, which represents a first step by a mobo maker to

    unleash the processor's overclocking potential. While Asus' 'CPU Lock Free' mobo BIOS feature won't

    unlock the full potential of Pentium 4 multipliers, it does makes use of Intel Prescott's

    Performance Requirement Bit feature. It is now thus possible to unlock the multiplier for high-end P4 Prescott processor.
