Default Re: How high can i OC this processor?

Go find your mobo, and go to the manufacturer's website and download the latest BIOS, put it on a bootable floppy and boot the BIOS and flash it. Prescotts need good cooling. They are very hot, but they can withstand hot temps. Post a screen shot of CPU-Z of that Pressy and ill tell you if itll clock well just from looking at the screeny

Well Dells don't suck for people who don't know anything about computers. They see it's from Dell a reputable brand and think it's good so they buy it and for the most part they're happy with it. Just people like us who know what we are doing and don't like Dells because you can't upgrade or overclock or anything like that, also becasue they use Intel .

Amen brother!

Not only that, but the parts inside are crap...
Freaking Dell Optiplex GX520 doesn't even have PS/2 Keyboard or Mouse ports. What the f*ck is with that?!?!
