Default Board limits

My first post around here so I should say greetings to all while I'm at it.


Hehe anyways. I have an MSI K7M Pro motherboard and I'm replacing my old processor with a 1GHz Thunderbird. The previous owner of the chip itself had it overclocked at 1.4Ghz on a KT266A board with standard cooling. I can't seem to find the speed limit for my board itself though. Last I heard it was 1Ghz. So what I'm wondering is if its possible to still overclock the processor to the amount it had been before. With ample cooling, of course.

So even with the board limited at 1GHz I should still be able to oc it to 1.4? This board doesn't have any dip switches and the like, so I'm guessing I should look around in the bios for something. though I'm not sure what to look for. I have ample cooling and I'm all ready to go, just need to know where to go first x.x
