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

1. Dells CAN NOT be oced, they lock everything. T
2. There is NO pencil mod for P4's because of the IHS.
3. You will need a new case and psu.
4. It is close to impossible to change out the psu for Dells.
5 Sorry to tell you that you cant OC. And that is a might fine processor you have there.

Im telling the truth, you cant change out the psu, they use a special plug for the mobo, not your standard 20 or 24 pin ATX plug.

Ha.. ha.. ha... That's why you don't buy stock CPU's. Yes you can OC them, there is always a way, if you put dedicated time into it. I think that would be a FINE CPU to overclock! Imagine hitting the 4.GHz marker... I wet myself thinking about it *joke*

yes, what did u think? Rocket science?
But then ofcourse u will need to start to mess with the voltage etc because if u don't it will become unstable. Not straight away but if u oc enough it will.

nah. It really ain't that hard. If u have never oc'd before go slow. And u could count the clock speed (multiplier x FSB) everytime that u have changed either of these. Also keep an eye on the temps.

And I don't suggest that u mess with the voltages if u are new to oc'ing. Messing with the voltage is the easiest way to say "bye bye" to ur cpu.
