Default Overclocking the Atom Eee PC...Can it be done?

Hello. I have an atom Eee PC (900a) and am wondering about overclocking it. I have noticed that they seem to run sluggish when running certain programs (especially openoffice) so I want to OC it. I have heard a very limited amount about OCing the celeron one, but not the Atom. Thanks.

EDIT: It is the LINUX one.

Uhm, well, using ntune isn't really modding it. But sure, with ntune it's probably possible. Although I would strongly suggest going through the bios whenever possible.

DAMN! it is only for windows.
sorry. I have the linux one, so it won't work. Plus I can't emulate it, so I need something else.

Keyword most

And the problem with ntune is that if it goes haywire and has consistent BSOD's, it can be difficult to get back into it to fix it. I don't know if going into the bios and just restoring the settings will fix it :-/

Why would one need or even want to overclock a netbook? What's the point?

Nope. my BIOS is locked. What about linux? I would never put windows on my netbook.

It seems to run sluggish in certain programs, and will run at 100% CPU capacity for very long periods of time in larger programs.
