1st, How do I overclock? How high can I OC? and what else can I do till I build my new Computer?

I have an Intel Core 2 E6550 (2.33GHz) CPU, I read max is about 2.7 but I'd like to get as close to 3.33 as possible.

The Motherboard specs are here:

My video card is a GeForce 7350 LE

    I'd say you won't get very high, if i remember the Core 2 Duos had a locked multiplier and considering that board as well i would figure you'd struggle for a 1Ghz increase. It's worth a shot though, you'd probably be able to get a few more Mhz without much voltage. But also bare in mind cooling as well, especially if it's an HP machine with those generally tiny cases.
  2. Yeah, I grafted in an extra 240 fan that is loud but pushes tons of air... Still, I'd like to know if it is possible to OC these parts and how...
