Not all bios's will just have an overclock feature, that allows a premade overclock setting to be applied. Infact not all hardware allows overclocking at all. If yours does, you might have to do it the technical way and change a lot of settings then stresstest for stability.

so is it really even worth my time attempting to flash a bios or "hack" it or should i just invest in a completely new system?

You have a big box, OEM computer you aren't going to be able to overclock it. Big box companies lock their BIOS because they don't want people messing with the BIOS. There is no BIOS flash or hack that will allow you to overclock the CPU you get what you get when you buy an OEM computer. The only thing you can do is get a new motherboard or a new computer, I would just get a new computer.

Get a new system...Put a post in the new build section with your estimated budget, trying to OC an OEM board may damage your rams and you have to tweak your northbridge frequencies etc. This could all be taxing and what ever little performance increase you may get would really not be worth the effort.

good luck

I have used both SETFSB and Clockgen to successfully OC chips before.

If you can get the PLL code and it is not a locked PLL.

They work.
