    Not bad at all is it your first overclock? As far as I can remember, P4 chips don't like the memory running on a lower divider (i.e. 5:4 as you have it set now), as it hurts performance. 1:1 or higher is better, but obviously your RAM may not be able to keep up as it is only PC3200.

    Two very important things:

    1) Have you checked the stability? Use Orthos or something and run 12+ hours to make sure you don't have any corruption issues; an unstable overclock is a worthless overclock!

    2) Make sure you monitor your temperatures (NB, Mosfets, Case, as well as CPU). Especially important if you've been playing with voltage controls.

    Hope that helps,
