Default will this OC?

I have a P4 3.0 GHZ (prescott) (socket 478) on an MSI board, I'm not sure what model the board is (all i can see physically is "MS-7060 VER 1") and i know that one of the chips on it is a 661fx (< I think thats the North Bridge chiop cause the south says 964).

The chipset is made by SiS.

But, my question is can i overclock my CPU any or at all?

I've heard the chipset sucks (why, dunno), the bios (as far as i've found) doesn't have anything related to changing the front side bus.

I know there's someone on this forum that can help me.

Did you build the comp yourself or did you buy it pre-built? If it was pre-built, they probably locked the BIOS and you wont be able to Overclock through BIOS options. There are programs that overclock through windows but those arent recommended.
