Yes you can O/C a P4, especially P4 1.6 Ghz than runs perfectly 2.0 Ghz most
of time, P4 1.8 a little bit less.

personally i asked myself that question : running client under DOS with x86
CPU from 386 to PII always give better results thant under GUI OS, but i
tried with PIII and P4 then results were worse ! did any one observed this ?
