Depending on your motherboard there may or may not be OC settings, depending on price and age.

There are OCing programs but they usually aren't very good.

Is it a prebuilt?

On the case does it say something like Dell or HP letting us know it is a prebuilt computer. If it is there will be no OC options in bios.

If you have stock cooling you will be limited as well. You would be lucky to get a 5 to 10% OC with your chip.

So from 2.0 you could get to 2.1 to 2.2. In the real world that will not make a significant difference.

If it is a prebuilt then you will not be able to OC it from the BIOS but you might be able to OC it from a windows app, these are generally held to be unstable though.

EDIT: ninja'd. Sigh.

Mine is a Emachines computer and is prebuilt, and most likely is locked to O/C.
