    P4 3.2 finally at 4.0 GHz

    I increased the voltage to 1.525 and viola, 4 GHz stable!

    38C idle and around 48C load, I'm very impressed so far. With low temps like that, I'm tempted to push the voltage and see if I can overclock it more.

    Possibly, but I think having higher performance memory and possibly high RPM SATA hard drives would help. The memory in this PC is just off the shelf value RAM, with heatspreaders and overclocked.
