Ok, Let me start off by saying I try to help all i can around these boards with the software department, that is a breeze for me. Hardware im still rusty at, but im studying about it in an A+ study guide. What I want to do is overclock my Processor. Im running an Intel Pentium 4 1.7Ghz, I have the standard fan installed, and i dust out my computer every month with a can of compressed air very carefully. You know the usual, Putting something in the fan just enough to block it from spinning as to not over rotate it and stuff. Now my questions are,
How would I go about overclocking my Processor?
Do I have enough protection from over heating?
If I do this, how long can I leave it overclocked?
