Default How can I test the CPU speed?

Hi everyone!

I suppose the title of my post obviously shows I am a total newbie at OC'ing. Most people will probably not even bother to read further!

I just wanted to know how to test my CPU speed and stability before and after overclocking.

Here is my newest system:

Intel E2200 [I know, cheap and low end]
ECS GF7050VT-M Motherboard
2 Gigs of crucial Ram
600 watt PSU

I read somewhere that I can overclock this chip to 2.93 simply by going into the BIOS and changing a BSEL setting. Anyone know much about this?

Can you help me please?

It is me,

Freddy

You'll get into your bios typically by pushing DEL on startup (during post) then you'll config your hardware.
