Default Overclocking a Gateway

Is there anyway to do this or can someone point me in the direction to do so.

I know that most factory computers lock the bios. but yeah like i said I have a GT5252, it has a 4600+ X2 and I just want to see what I can get out of it.

thanks in advance!

-Kev

You can use a program from within the OS that can overclock it I think. I don't know the name of it but somebody on here will. What are the specs of it?

I mean a program that allows you to change FSB and multipliers etc from inside the OS. Something like ASUS's AI Booster. Remember, the BIOS is locked on his PC.

Download PC Wizard 2008 to check your processor temps. As for OC'ing, I could help you if it's an Intel processor, if it's an AMD, there are other people more skilled in that department, so I'll leave it to them.
