Recently I have been overclocking my system (mainly to get more speed out of RalliSport). I have already overclocked my Radeon 9500 Pro to 350/310 (core clock/memory clock) which is fine. I have been overclocking my Pentium 4 2.4B Ghz. Apparently P4's do not support changing the multiplier , so I have so far raised the FSB from 133 mhz to 150 mhz. So the processor is running at 2.7 Ghz, and the FSB at 600 mhz. Also, the memory POSTs at 375 mhz (I have 333 DDR). Is the memory actually being overclocked as well? Will I have to watch out for memory stability too? So far, MemTest86 reports no errors. Also, I have read that if the processor becomes unstable, I should raise the vcore. Is that true? (I subject the cpu to a night of generating fractals to test it's stability. Poor thing)
