You won't need to flash the BIOS, Pentium 4s especially the Prescott cores are well known for their overclockablity. You could possibly gain 500mhz or more if you do it correctly.

I thought you couldn't OC DeLLs. You can?

What is "flashing" anyway? Harmful, in any way? Complex?

Yes u can oc them if u get a bios that isn't locked.

Basicly the flashing is just replacing the current bios with a new one.

Harmfull? Well not if u know what u are doing, but if u screw up, well, then ur just really screwed up.

Complex? Depending on the mobo. If it's something that has an easy application that u can use from windows then it's easy. If u need to boot stuff from the floppy and flash it from there then it's a little harder.

Don't you need superb cooling to do this to a Prescott core? I belive so. These things get hot, as everyone knows.
