    Hi all,
    I am looking in to overclocking my 5 or 6 year old PC. I want to see if you guys can give me advice, such as: How high to overclock or what else to change.

    If you guys can give me advice from these pics, that would be great.
    And which comp would is faster?
    The one with the lower Mhz is a Sony 2yr old laptop and the other is a 5yr old desktop. I do NOT want info on over clocking the laptop. That will stay the same.

    A little more info:
    I have 1024 MBS of RAM that is NOT overclockable. It is PC3200 in 1 slot and PC2700 in the other. Old.

    Desktop: http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc.php?id=281056


    EDIT: Don't know why it says that laptop dump is invalid. Thats strange.

    Do NOT try to overclock a Laptop, it will overheat, catch fire, and melt if you get it too hot. And is your Desktop a Pre-built? If so likely, you can't overclock that either since it has a locked bios.

    Do Northwood P4's even overclock that high to begin with? Prescott's have trouble after about 3.8 with LC and Cedar Mill's can get over 4Ghz barrier with good Mobos. You might want to find a Motherboard review for your motherboard as most sites have overclocking results. That will be an indication of what to expect.
