older CPU's like that arent very overclockable. they usually cant overclock past 50mhz over there stock settings. but if you REALLY want to overclock it then you would need your PLL model number and manufacturer

actually this model and the 300a model are good to about 450 mhz which about 120 mhz over, with stock cooling..cranking v-cores up will get you around 500 but you'll need a good cooling system...

what is a pll model number and what is the manufacturer..is that the manu. of the pll?
