Do a BSEL Mod, as most Dells, HPs and most OEM pc are bios locked. So no bios overclock

If you want to OC, you'll have to build it. PCs from big name companies like HP, Dell, Emachines, etc, locks most of the bios.

That's why I stopped buying prebuilt PCs. That, along with the fact building is cheaper and a lot more fun.

That way when your PC is old and slow enough, you'll buy another one instead of ocing. :D 

That, and they use cheap, bottlenecked components that don't do well with overclocking. :sarcastic:
