Sorry to put a downer on this dudes (if it isn't already been done).

As the folks have said, DELL + O/Cing = Not going to happen,

and anyway, what are you expecting to O/C your P4 3.6GHz 5xx series hot plate to anyway, and with what additional cooling? These things are so hot at stock speeds that they throttle back anyway when maxed out, so your not going to get much outta it anyway.

Simply forget it.

dont worry, no offense taken, to my knowledge, on older dells, dell use a special ATX power connector for their mobos. Didnt know that your 8250 has a 20pin ATX power connector....interesting.

yeah, but that is most likely done with liquid nitrogen cooling.
I've never fixed one up myself but I gues it won't be too easy and not to mention the price.

there are some insane coolers out there, like 4-phase LN2's and such. Takes huge wattage. But nonetheless very cool results and pictures
