Q6600 - Dell Dimension 9200

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I would like to overclock my dell. It is 4 years old and I use it for music production. I want to improve it for Pro Tools LE 8.

I found this link on how to do so but I just want to get some other opinions on whether or not this is the best way to do it. I would really appreciate any help I can get with this as I have not done it before. Thanks in advance. smile.gif

Almost impossible to overclock a pre-built system due to Bios limitations. Search around for some OCing software compatible with your chipset and you might get lucky smile.gif

If anything you find calls for modifying mobo or chip...don't do it unless you're really comfortable do so.

Should be possible if you can get the PLL of that board. Last resort would be a BSEL mod.

Quit while you're ahead. Even if you do go through the annoying mods you'll have to do, it'll never be stable. I once managed to overclock a Dell and it would randomly reboot due to Windows "thinking" something was wrong.
