Don't OC a name brand desktop. Just build yourself a PC then overclock.
Like hheemmpp said, this is the wrong section to post this in.

anyway, download some software Ocing software, otherwise its impossible, but i dont advise software OCing, its not as stable as hardware and you might burn through the limits of your cooler since it it prob stock.

Most, if not all people would advise against it because of the parts and cooling that it would have. The motherboard might not support overclocking and the CPU fan/heatsink might not be able to handle any, and you'll end up just ruining your system.

Lol

Even if you could Overclock, there wouldn't be a difference.

There are ways, but I'm not going to mention them, because you'd probably damage your system due to the poor cooling OEM/Prebuilts tend to have. Even if you did, you wouldn't see much increase in performance.
