You would have to get a new motherboard or software overclock. I am not a fan of software so I would vote new motherboard.

Also I am not too familiar with HP's and some builder use propriatary Power supplies so you may have to switch that ifyou go the motherboard route. With any overclock you will have to consider cooling too.

Hey and Welcome to oc.net. Well i see thats a HP pre-built system and Unfortunately all ther Ocing options in there Bios will be unavailable as they lock them off. The only way to overclock now is to Get a New Motherboard..You can Oc however through software but these Overclocks can be Unstable.

As far as I know HP does not use propriatary parts, so you should be able to slap a new mobo in there. To check the power supply google a ATX 20-pin pin-out and compair that to what yours has.
