Im going to cut to the chase here, thats waaaaaay off "high end"

You would be better off upgrading parts of your system, i.e processor/ram/ video card etc

If your BIOS has no option to overclock, and there are no updates or the updates also have no option, then I'm afraid you can't overclock.

ASRock isn't very good for overclocking anyways.

Your PC is very out dated, if you want more performance you might as well upgrade.

Thats what i said! and to get much better performance you wouldnt need to spend much at all, so something to think about there especially as you can build your own pc's it will be even cheaper
