But i guess you didnt want to know the specs but the overclock right?

I want to get this system maxed out. Right now i've done the 4% bios overclock, so it's now 3.58ghz, very stable, stressed temp = 50°c.

I know this motherboard hasnt got a very good reputation for overclocking, and my bios wont let me overclock any further than this.
So i guess, now it's the softwaretools taking over right?
Anyone wants to give me few tips? Or help me a hand? Because i kinda know square about overclocking p4's (barton )

Greetings,
Black.

System Overall Performance.
Outstanding. Averages 30-80 fps in FS2004, even when flying over Midtown Manhattan with MegaScenery. … For those of you who just live to overclock your systems to achieve warp speed hyper-performance, the Alienware ASUS motherboard is much better suited to stand up to that kind of punishment …
