You cannot overclock an HP. They lock the multiplier with soder. There is no safe way to do it, and with HPs passive cooling, I wouldn't risk it. You could get a new MOBO, and install it with all the HP parts in a new case to overclock it, but that may be more money then you want to spend. SRY MAN, I feel for you.

Yes, HP doesn't allow overclocking being that if they did, customers wouldn't spend the extra 200+ dollars to upgrade their processors to the next level. That is why it is bad to buy from such a large company such as HP, Compaq, and especially.........DELL........... Anyway, sry man, get a new MOBO, and then overclock it. That will work, and may increase your system performance, being that your HP probably doesn't use that great of a MOBO in the first place.

where did u get this at?
I've overclocked hp systems before. And what would they solder to lock it?
I say go in the bios and see if you can change the bus speed if you can, it can be overclocked.

Also AMD ZEN, I am sorry if it seems I am busting your balls at times, but I just find alot of what you post to be....uhm... questionable.
I'm not saying your wrong, always, but in this case I don't think you can prove your correct...but i could be wrong.
