Just make sure if you OC, you use proper cooling and that your new CPU is compatible with your current board (socket type).

If you've seen some results of overclocking, it can damage more than your CPU (extreme overclocking videos on Google, with no HS). I don't think you'd push it that far.. but OC'ing the CPU without proper cooling will obviously burn it out.

yeah, you cant really see it in the Duron one, but in the P4 one, smoke comes out from the BOTTOM of the the table. Which totally gives it away.

BUMP one more question though isn't a celeron D pretty much the same as the northwood pentium 4's only difference i can see is that the celeron D has 256 cache and the P4 has 512, but they both have 533 front side bus and so on. Please correct me if im wrong or let me know if im right. Just wondering

yeah, that is pretty much the only difference. But Celerons have a lower clock speed too.
