Angry clocking computer ???

I just built a new system im running a pentium 4 2 ghrz processor. I know thats nothing spectacular but it gets the job done. I got a new ATI Radeon video card, and a Audigy sound blaster audio card. I have 768 MB of ram with a 180 gb hard drive. The only problem is that my processor isnt the greatest in the world. I noticed a program called power strip came on the disk with my video card drivers and i have it installed but dont know to much about it. From what i can see you can set your clock speed with it but i dont feel like frying my processor. If anyone can give me advice or help me out please do. Any input will be great.
