You can not overclock on an HP (Oem) motherboard. They have locked bios and if you could overclock it would damage hp's or whatever companies board and they would be getting complaints.

Are you sure you got a E8400 @ 2.8GHz?
Because a E8400 stock is @ 3.0GHz.

As amuffin stated, HP, Dell, etc., motherboards do not permit overclocking.

There are some elaborate ways to go around this by using "SetFSB" - DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK
