Hi, I was wondering, with the release of many powerfull games around the corner, how can I overclock my CPU? I have a 2.4 Ghz P4 at 333MHz FSB. I don't have much experience at overclocking at all. Is there any simple to use program that can quickly overclock it to, hopefully, a 2.5 Ghz or 2.6 Ghz processor? Also, my computer is built by DELL, if that makes a difference. Thank you for your time.

First, you should post in the <A HREF="http://forumz.tomshardware.com//modules.php?name=Forums..." target="_new">OVERCLOCKING FORUM</A>!

Is since your computer is built by DELL, you will probably don't have a lot of overclocking option in your BIOS.

Your BIOS doesn't support overclocking, and I doubt the motherboard's clock generator is supported by any software overclocking utilities.
