  1. These processors can't be overclocked since their multipliers are locked. You can just modify the BLCK clocks but that will overclock you HDD as well, and this is NOT RECOMMENDED. Anyways you won't get more than a hundred mhz by upping it. But you WILL experience HDD crashes, slowdowns and freezes if you overclock the BLCK too far. Don't touch voltages as it will serve nothing.

    Not a problem. I know it looks like a lot to take in, but the first half of the article just explains what constitutes OCing, with a small portion actually addressing how to manipulate those settings. The best way to learn is through experience, so go ahead and give it a shot! Just make sure to change settings in small increments. That way, you'll know when one setting needs to be increased, or another decreased in respect, without frying your CPU.

    And yeah, let us know how it goes for sure. :)
