Default Can I overclock my CPU?

Hello. I have the Zotac 630i-Supreme motherboard Zotac 630i-Supreme and an Intel Pentium Dual-Core 2.5 E5200 processor.

I was wondering if it is possible to overclock my processor with my motherboard. I went into BIOS, but I do not know what to look for. I updated my BIOS to the most recent update and it stated it allowed iGPU overclock. I know that is the Graphics but I don't know if the CPU is able to be overclocked.

Please help me. Thanks!

Generally if you don't know what you're looking for, you should stop now before you ruin anything. Take a look through some archives at MaximumPC.com - their old issues are archived in PDF format, and they run overclocking segments all the time for beginners as well as experts. There's just so many things to tell you that they already cover very well.

I'll give you a head start and direct you toward these issues:
