VR-Zone Hardware have posted a guide on how to voltage mod the P4 Northwood to set the default voltage from 1.5V to 1.85V for that extra bit of overclockability - Although I find my P4 1.6A can do 2.1GHz or higher at the default core volatge of 1.5V. However, by doing this mod, the board you use no longer requires support for any voltage tweaking and you will still be able to carry on with the overclocking.
