Well if you see frequency settings in the BIOS you can overclock it

By the looks of your sig, you had better not try it unless you really know what you are doing.

c0mmun1st4lyf3 07-04-2005 07:17 PM

aw yea.. i think i know what you mean. but can u still OC it? not that i'll do it. but i just wanna know if you can do that with a pre built computer

GameGURU 07-04-2005 07:19 PM

I would need to know the exact system specs...

Their is the BIOS, and windows software.

If your motherboard or chipset is in cpuid.org clockgen list, you can do it. However i betya my money it wont be, and it wont be in the BIOS either.

i bet ur right... my friends said i couldn't OC

if your prebuilt computer is HP, Compaq, Dell....something like a company like that....you won't be able to OC it because it's going to be some whack no-name mobo with NO settings in the BIOS basically and it won't even be listed in clockgens list

c0mmun1st4lyf3 07-05-2005 07:12 PM

mine is hp, i think you can only OC a custom built computer
