Default Using a B.E. cpu in a OEM system?

Yo, I have this C521 dell laying around, I was wondering if i got a 5000 BE, could i use software to change the multi, or has dell locked that up too?

I would be very surprised if you could overclock on a Dell mobo. Usually the software adjusts the BIOS settings.

You should also backup all important data before hand. You could use Norton Ghost, as that does a complete image disk of your boot partion. Many problems can happen during overclocking, your O/S may not be able boot due to file corruption which is caused by an unstable processor.

The dell died before I bought the 5000+. Oh well, it was free in a trash can, so I guess it was worth the 1 torrent it downloaded...

Edit: sorry about the delay, I wasn't notified of the updates on this thread.
