Hi everyone, I want to overclock my Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 CPU to maybe 3.0 GHz. Right now it is at 2.4 GHz. My motherboard is the one that comes with the Dell Precision 390 desktop. I don't think I have a cooler in there but I can check if I have to. Could you guys tell me how to overclock my cpu?

I also have 3.25 GB of ram and I have a GeForce GTX 650 video card if that helps at all.

Honestly, you are not going to be able to OC a Dell OEM motherboard, especially a Dell Precision 390 based rig. The controls to do so are not available to users. That is a workstation class motherboard and they are not designed for OCing.
