Help to begin overclocking (BIOS Q)

Hi,

I have a Packard Bell iMedia 3720. (or has been known as iMedia D2521UK)
Windows 64bit
Intel Celeron E3300 2.5Ghz dual core
4GB DDR2 GEIL EVOONE pc2-6400
AMD Radeon HD 6670 1gb GDDR5 low profile
MOBO Packard Bell MCP73PV (Intel)
BIOS American Megatrends Inc. P01-A2, 09/24/2009

It seems that this CPU can handle a good boost, in some cases up to 4Ghz stably. I don't want/need to take it that high though.
I have read a lot about how to overclock and I know what to do and what not to do in regards to multipliers and voltage and FSB etc.
I already have many programs like CPU-ID, SpeedFan, RealTemp and Prime95.

My question is this;
I don't know where to start. I'm unsure if the motherboard has locked the Bios but I can;t seem to establish anywhere in the BIOS the options I would use to change the multiplier or FSB etc.

If it is not possible to do this utilizing the BIOS then is there a decent piece of software that can be used in windows?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks
Dan

  1. Well your computer is OEM (I think that's what it's called. English isn't my first language) so the BIOS is very likely locked. You could use a software to overclock but it may not be very good
  2. Thanks but that doesn't really help.
    Can anybody else provide a suggestion?
