Do I need a faster CPU?

Sorry t9c, I have not specifically used that program, but had had it recommended before (it doesn’t actually support my mobo so I didn’t bother). I tweaked mine from BIOS, and like I said, my P4B is pretty easy to step up as long as you watch the temp.

Again, I’m sorry for suggesting it - but we all know o/cing can be dicey. I did a lot of research on my mobo before I tried it, and spent two days stepping it up, testing certain applications, watching the heat, etc. Experiences like yours are a good lesson to the rest of us that there can be a price, if there’s any silver lining to this.
