Default Help Overclocking CPU

Is there some sort of user friendly software to overclocking a CPU.

My current specs are:

Windows ME
Intel Pentuim3
1Ghz
320 RAM
128MB sapphire radeon 9600XT

And what do u recommend I overclock to, I wanna try to hit 1.2Ghz, without cooling...


Don't post if your going to tell me to buy new computer, i don't have the money...


EDIT: forgot, i have a Dell Dimension Desktop 4100

Well you overclock from your bios.
I am also guessing your dell is not overclockable, as most pre assembled systems are not.

Look for frequency settings in the bios, if you have them you can overclock, if you dont, you cannot overclock.

Yeah my BIOS are locked up I think(they shaded gray)... Is there some overclocking software instead? I was reading some forums where peopel overclocked their dells with overclocking software. Is there such thing?

P.S. Sorry for this going in wrong forum, i just realised theres a overclocking forum.
