Default Overclock? tower fan? i'm cheap? yes.

I'm extremly limited on money, i can spend about 2 dollars right now.

Is it worth overclocking my Pentium 4 with HT 2.99ghz.

how much should i overclock it, i already overclocked my video card so it produces a load of heat.

What I do whenever it gets really hot I stick this average tower fan in my comptuer and it lowers the temp about 20C. Should I overclock my computer and is there any way to make my computer less hot and be faster.

PS. can you overclock ram?? lawlz

no, don't OC your cpu. not worth the issues it will cause.
you can cool better with more system fans.

you can OC ram but i wouldn't suggest it.

I have overclocked a p4 2.80 to 3.11 ghz with no extra cooling.
that should give you some guidelines to see how far you can go.
btw i did the 2.80 to 3.11 withoout raising voltage.
