Any suggestions for ramping up a P4 Dual core to crunch WU\'s a bit more rapidly?

I am running my P4D @ 5% overclock ( a safe amount, remains in heat generation safe parametres, which makes it about 3 GHtz, with 1.024 gigs of DDR2 RAM.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Be wary of the overclocking. This project is very sensitive to it and may turn up errors even when all other checks tell you the computer is ok.

Ok, am not experiencing problems, but that doesn\'t answer my question:

I see someone with a straight P4 churning out units @ 800 hours to my dual cores 1100... 2.8 Gghtz, o/c\'d to just under 3.....

Yes, but you\'re doing two models at the same time, and he\'s doing one. Hence you\'re getting a lot more work done in the same time.
