Overclock related question...stupid HP!
Hello there forum users, i bought an HP Media Center a while back, and i've recently decided to try to overclock it. Trouble is, the bus speeds/multipliers etc. are greyed out in the BIOS.
Now i don't know a whole lot about computers / overclocking and such, but i heard somewhere that HP locks their bus speeds and doesn't allow overclocking. Is this true? And if so, is there any way of bypassing that? I tried a program called 'softfsb', and it really didn't do jack for me.
EDIT: If there is no way around it, could i just slap a cheap new mobo in my rig and be fine for overclocking?
