  1. Usually on Dell computers they lock the motherboard so you can't overclock or mess with their settings in any way.
    We can't tell you what settings to change , you have to do that your self , I would suggest reading the stickeys at the top of this forum. Overclocking is a process that you have to sit down and change the settings and test the changes to make sure they are stable. It's a tedious time consuming process and you have to have a lot of patience.
