Nothing wrong with MSI in general but no you can not overclock. HP, Dell, ect. lock the options in BIOS that allow overclocking. The do this for 2 reasons. 1) They buy cheap mass market parts that can not handle the extra heat and voltages created by overclocking and, 2) They want you to buy a new faster computer not overclock the one you have. This is why most of us here on these forums build our own computers.
