Default Out of Interest...

This may be a silly question to most of you, but how do I increase the voltage running through my processor and memory?

The only thing in my bios that mentions voltage is for monitoring purposes, you can't do anything with it, I've searched for ages in my bios, with no luck

I had a Gateway computer before and that feature where you can adjust the FSB, memory latency adj., and all that good stuff is taken out.
