You probably won't be able to, most manufactured motherboards have no options to overclock.

You can't.



Unless it's a retail motherboard that's locked down. Which yours isn't. It's just physically incapable of overclocking.

I dont think you'll be able to - since its an OEM board.

I think you got the exact same answer in your thread yesterday ..
Sorry, but I don't think you will be able to overclock a dell board.

The motherboard/BIOS itself wont have the options... I had an old Pentium4 emachines and i was able to "unlock" the board but all it did was give me a new start up screen.
I unlocked it by flashing the BIOS with the actual mobo manufacturing company BIOS instead of the Emachines BIOS. Gave me NO overclocking options so i just used software to overclock the FSB using the PLL

EDIT: ninja'd by 3 ppl....
You cant Hyperthread it unless the processor has that support(mobo too)

Well do you have the oppotunity to get another old P4 from somewhere? .. Just have to be a retail board - thoy shouldnt cost a fortune.

You could probaly be able to software OC it, but software OCing isnt that stable really ..
