Default OCing my CPU

Hey guys,

So as some of you know, I'm going to be stuck with a P4 2.8ghz until I get my E6600, but I'm going to buy the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro anyways because my Dell HSF is proprietary.

Do you guys think I should try to OC my P4 a little with my new computer? I was considering trying to get it to at least an even 3ghz, but to be honest I know jack and shit about OCing, and Jack left town.

Thoughts?

What should I aim for while OCing? 3.0? 3.2?

Can anyone link me to some OCing for dummies?

Model is 520 I believe.

The RAM will be some 800mhz stuff (haven't decided yet).

Cooling solution will be Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro

Mobo will be Intel D975XBX2 (Bad Axe 2)

OMFG
Dude, it's so easy to OC these days
No fracking jumpers to set for VCORE, FSB, multiplyers, ect.
Go in to your BIOS, under CPU setup, freq., voltage, ect. depending on what BIOS your mobo has, find the FSB setting, it will be at default, set it to manual, increase 1-5 MHZ at a time, reboot, repeat, untill it locks up, then you can fine tune later with memory CAS lat. and VCORE tinkering, the FSB is the easiest way to OC your CPU
Hell, even with generic RAM, you should be able to get a 20 MHZ OC on the FSB
When you get it where you want it, Prime95 it for at least 24H, to make sure your OC is stable
