Would need to know more about your system, your current CPU, and your current temperatures.

Also Dell use custom motherboards that don't allow overclocking within BIOS, so you would probably have to overclock within Windows.

Dell BIOS doesn't have OC feature and it's hardcoded. Nothing to do with a BIOS password.
