Hi, how should I say this, I'm not the smartest person in the world and the intel overclocking fourms didn't help me understand how to overclock my CPU. I have a P4 3.0GHz (the one that gets hot). The problem is I have a Dell 4700 PC so I have no clue how to overclock with Dells AO5 BIOS. Please help me overclock my CPU, thanks in advance!

Any idea of what mobo I should get? And how much would it cost? Also, would it fit in my damn Dell 4700?

but you may be able to overclock a lil bit with Clockgen

goto www.cpuid.com and download clockgen and figure out which intel motherboard you have and give it a go


Might as well just get a new mobo. I tried those on my intel and doesnt do a whole lot.

im not sure but that does sound typical... i hate my dell. build your own, its the best thing you could ever do! thats what i did and now everything is great! btw dont ask dell for customer support cuz its in india so unless you speak hini you just cant understand the bas i wont finish that word. but yes i f you can get ur money back sell ur dell, if not rip everything out of it and put it in a new case with a new motherboard like this one cheers dude
