Doubt you could overclock a pentium, if your board has OC options you could always give it a shot. It's one of the more lower end Pentiums on the LGA775 platform anyway, so dont expect a big performance increase.
If you can pull it off, you shouldn't need to spend money on a better cooler for a 1.6-2.0ghz OC anyway.

However if that board will take a Core2Quad i'd recommend picking one up from ebay, i see Q6600's all the time for under $70 these days, and some of them OC pretty well.

Otherwise, you could also pick up an LGA1155 Celeron, 2GB DDR3 RAM and a cheap H610 mobo all for around $120 which will perform much better than what you have there and you can still keep all your other components (PSU, hard drives, case, etc..)

This is solid advice. Just to add to it, there is no BIOS options for you to overclock the processor on that board, and using software is not ideal at all, even then I wouldn't recommend it since that board is not made to run anything past its standard specifications, with only 3 phase power.

If that mobo truly has zero overclocking options, though all you would really need is FSB adjustment for a minor OC, then this could be your ticket -

http://www.overclock.net/t/341123/intel-bsel-vid-mod-guide

Overclocking and volt modding 775 CPU for motherboards that lack these settings. Basically, you "trick" your motherboard into thinking the processor runs higher bus speeds then it's meant to by modding the pins. And for what the parts are worth these days (I literally have boxes of socket 775 CPUs), I wouldn't feel too concerned about killing anything...just go for it. A 1.6GHz 775 dual core is not a very relevant chip these days, so what have you got to lose other than some old, slow and *worthless hardware?

EDIT - pics on linked thread are down, just type "BSEL mod" into google, and I am sure you'll find the info you need.

I have done overclocking on my e2160 with a oem board before, using the "BSEL mod" mentioned before, my chip went from 1.8GHz to 3Ghz stable without much heat, it could play GTA IV after that, I'll go dig up some old pictures of that (if I can find it) I used tin/aluminium foil which I cut out with an x-acto knife and glued on using pva glue or "craft glue"

It works great and I highly recoomand you to try, since the chip is already labled end-of-life anyways thumb.gif

EDIT:
here are the pics:



Just cut out foil (or use conductive ink) and paste in the indicated spots (be careful not to short out other pins)

This is for the overclock ^

this is for the voltage increase ^

Have fun!
