Bad news:<br />
The only way you could is to get a new motherboard or via software (not recommended).<br />

Good news:<br />
You would only need a new motherboard, all your other parts should plug in no problem<img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />

To understand the basics of overclocking read <a href="http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/1567-intel-overclocking-guide.html" target="_blank">this guide</a>. However I agree with the above poster, I dought you have any options VIA the bios to overclock your system. 99% of all intel boards have a locked bios(which is where you need to make your changes, so if you have no options in bios then your only other option is via software and this is realy not recomended as it is not a very reliable or stable option when it comes to overclocking.

The draw backs of overclocking Via software I have already said. As for causing damage to your CPU or board, I would say no as your not able to make any voltage changes, thus the only thing you would have to worry about is stability. Overclocking does viod your warranty if they can figure out weather it was overclocked or not, but in most cases its not an issue as its hard to proove.
