Default oc my cpu help!

I wanna over clock my cpu just a tad bit so I can get a little performance boost. But I wanna do it so its not to hot and runs at a consistient temperature that doesn't go pass maximum for max temp on my cpu. Here is my computer specifications, I really actually have 80 gb hardrive and no floppy drive dispite what is says on the link.


I wanna use Clockgen to oc it but I need to find out the correct PLL on my computer. I know I need to look on my mother board to find it but I didn't know what I was looking for. could anyone help me with this thanks for the help in advance.

P.S. also need to know how to add voltage to my cpu when I over clock it that way I have don't have any problems.

Sorry to tell you this but you can overclock a pre-built computer.

yeah unfortunately the main computer manufacturers use a modified bios with most of the settings you need locked out.

that is why to overclock you gotta build your own.

Well that adds another reason for me to build my own computer, which I plan on doing when I am older and have a fixed income.
