OKay well let me put it this way, you cant overclock unless you get another motherboard. Dell or any other brand name computers dont overclock.....so buy yourself a new motherboard and then you will be able to overclock

Run CPU-Z it should tell you what socket CPU you have.

www.cpuid.com

I'm guessing it's a socket 478.

No problem .

On subject: I am almost positive that Orange is correct, there isn't a clockgen for that mobo. You can just get a new motherboard and use all of your old equipment though. Might need a new psu and case, since Dells are a little funky.
