Default how do you oc cpu?

I wont to oc my cpu intel 3.6 ghz


just to help with cpu limits i have with my card

I already have a large heatsink on it right now so heat shouldnt be an issue


How do you oc the cpu?

would the best way is to just raise it to 3.7/3.8 etc?

or is there more to it then that

is it like oc the graphics card? because that is very easy to do

you do it in your bio's, when you hit F8, on computer start up. you just change the operating frequency, and you better have a good cooling system, and for gods sake, tell us what were working with, so we can tell you correctly..

Oh rite...erm...yes, I think Dells locked it. Look for a jumper or something that unlocks it. Which one? I don't know, but take a look
