If you're talking about Your current computer, chances it wont OC, most manufacturers lock options like that.

However, building your own computer would yield much higher results then most computers you can buy, also you can lay next to it and admire it's beauty when you go to bed, because you built it....

Okay, sorry if i crept you out XD
