Is this a pc you built or is it a prebuilt you bought like a Dell or HP? Because if it's a prebuilt, we have some bad news in terms of overclocking

I would look into getting another cooler other then the Arctic Cooler 7. I would recommedn you get a Xigmatek 120mm Direct Heatpipe Cooler like the Dark Knight.

It's pre-built, though I've changed the power supply and graphics card

Ouch, but the builders almost always lock the overclocking features in the bios to prevent people from messing around with the system. Sometimes there's a way to unlock it (flashing it or a secret keypress like shift+F1 or something) but it's unlikely.

You can either try Windows ocing applications like setfsb but they don't work that well. The other option is to switch out the motherboard.
