Trying to Overclock Compaq SR5433WM

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
A friend of mine that doesn't have internet access right now wanted me to post this question for him. It has is a pre built system and I know it is locked for overclocking and he confirmed by going into the BIOS and the overclocking freatures have been greyed out. He wants to know if there is any way to overclock this system by cpu, video etc. I know there is something called pin modding but I am unfamilar with this only have heard about it. I think he is going out on a limb on this but what the heck I will see what kind of response I get from this.

Thanks

Last time I checked a very high percentage of pre-built systems are locked except for a few exceptions, so I don't think he'll be overclocking anything.

if he wants to overclock he is strictly limited to windows based overclocking software, and he needs to find a specific program that supports his chipset, and if hes ocing video card, his gpu as well. He wont be able to overclock from the bios as most manufacturers lock it out purposely.
