Hum diddy hum, overclocking a P4 is ok, but be careful. I recommend you use a different thermal paste, something that includes Alumina (Al203) such as Artic Alumina thermal compound. When the temperature reaches a certain point, a reaction occurs that is endothermic (requires heat energy to activate, thus taking away surrounding heat) because of the Alumina compound. Try this, and get a high speed fan and copper heatsink with a Tungsten core (if you can find one) and a 120mm fan to cool the processor, or switch to Peltier cooling!!
