i didnt know you could overclock pre-built computers!! how do you do that??! i really wanna oc a P3 Dell Optiplex i have here. Please tell me how!
I used spray paint, I and also a clear enamel coat over it. The trick is to go over it multiple times with a light mist, If you blotch it on the sides, it will look like ****. Like an hour ago I touched up the paint on the edges and it looks like it was professionally done. The next job I want to do is to download the Half Life 2 symbol and cut out a stencil and make a computer case dark blue with a bright orange symbol.

I OC'd on the jumpers on the board. I turned up the multiplier and the FSB. You cant OC a dell optiplex unless you can overclock it by hardware means ie: jumpers or thru the BIOS.
