P4 processor and motherboard

  1. I have an old motherboard with 478 chipset, intel Celeron D320 2,4GHz and FSB: 533. My motherboard (2003 year) supports FSB 400/533/800 but now it rus at 533 with celeron.
    1. Can I overclock my system to max FSB 800MHz if the rest of the system supports it?
    My processor runs at 2620MHz and PC3200 RAM runs at effective 366MHz. Original system bus is 133MHz.
    2. Can i buy socket 478 pentium processor wich FSB is 800MHz?
    3. Wich of these is better:
    P4 2,8GHz, FSB 800MHz, system bus 200MHz
    P4 3,0GHz, FSB 533MHz, system bus 133MHz (Or something near that)
    4. If processor is 3GHz and FSB 533 will memory bus still be 166MHz? My curren celeron is 2,4GHz with FSB 533MHz and memory bus is at 166MHz.
    Sorry for bad english and probably posting to the wrong place.

    Socket 478 CPUs are hard to find these days. You'd probably be better off just upgrading the system to a cheap Core 2 on socket 775. That would probably triple the performance.

    Yes you should be able to, if your system supports it.

    Yes you should be fine running at 3.0ghz, but you should watch out for your temperatures.
    I would say keep below 60 - 70 degrees C.

    At 2,4GHz my computer runs allready at 58-75 C. It was 45-55 degrees C in the old case. Processor is in the airtight corner and it ain't last long.

    But if i put in 2,8GHz processor with FSB 533MHz my memory bus still stays at 166MHz? My current system with Celeron processor is 2,4GHz and FSB 533. Does FSB depend of (the?) processor?

    System says that if i change timings to 3 - 4 - 4 - 8 then memory bus will be at 200MHz. So i changed to (3 4 4 8) but everest said taht timings are 2.5 - 4 - 4 - 8. CL don't go over 2.5 for some reason. I put my timings 2 - 3 - 3 - 7 for now.

    Please correct my grammar mistakes.
