Derickz, brand computers usually have a proprietary BIOS that does not offer these types of options. An alternate way but not usually recommended is software overclocking. Clockgen seems to be widely used for this particular issue. Data corruption may become more frequent. In some cases hardware damage can also occur. Another reason why overclocking straight from the BIOS is better and probably the safest way....not to mention also the array of available options to choose from.

If you really want to get into overclocking, pick up an aftermarket motherboard

Good luck
