I use one of these (ClockGen being my program of choice) because I hit a brick wall after around 2.1GHz OC'ing using BIOS alone. I've put the HTT/FSB up waaaaaaaaay too high just to see if it could handle it (even if it wasn't stable) and the comp. locked up and flashed an error screen and then turned off. Booted right back up no problem.
Also, when you reboot a comp that you OC'ed in Windows, it immediately wipes the OC when you turn off the PC.
However, I'm not sure if this program would work on a Dell.
