Default Overclocking

How could I overclock my system???? My BIOS doesn't support overclocking.

Is there any special software which will help me to do so???

welcome to tech forums.

im guessing that you have a prebuilt system, you might be able to flash the bios to get it unlocked if you know what kind of motherboard you have. then you can overclock, but if you do that you would void the warrenty on your system.
