Question about OC an old motherboard...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I'm new to over clocking and wanted to see if i could get somemore life out of an old system. Its a P4 2.4ghz FIC VL13L. If you need to know more let me know. I know its limited in what can be done but im just not sure what I can do. I couldnt find any info on OC this mobo online so any help would be great.

Is this an OEM computer, such as Dell, Gateway, HP, etc? If so, you will not be able to overclock the system because your bios will be locked up to prevent such things. Your only option would be to use window based applications like Clockgen and such, but you will have little or no success. If it is not an OEM computer you can look get into the bios and tweak some things. Look into this Overclocking Guide, and get familiar with your motherboard bios options.
