Default Overclocking a Dell

My Specs:
Dell E5150
Intel 945g Chipset
P4 Prescott 630 3.0ghz HT


Ok i've been looking forever for a way to overclock a dell. And i've found a way. look at this:






As much as he explains it i dont get how he does it:

http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=903623

It seems like hes punching in pins on his processor and mobo. can someone help explain how to do this?


I understand the risks, i know that dell uses low quality parts but i need to do it.

Looks like he soldered a few of the pins together. Sounds like a good way to ruin a processor.

Yea, he's physically modifying his CPU. I would not recommend doing that unless you are extremely good at soldering and have a disposable CPU to try it with.
