Hi
I think this question was answered many times here, however I have limited time to allocate those answers, since it is not for me, but the others I am helping.
The question is relatively simple - is there similar to AMD OverDrive software for Intel overclocking (CPUs with unlocked multipliers). I don't have Intel myself so I would not be able to see interface and check those programs, so I prefer program which looks and feels like AOD.
All this is for overclocking Dell PCs using processors with unlocked multipliers. It is possible to overclock Dell with locked BIOS.
Here is the second question.
Is there a list of Intel processors with unclocked multipliers similar to AMD Black Edition ones. I understand that 2600K (K is unlocked, am I correct) and QX X is unlocked, anything else missing, can anyone would be so patient and provide the list of all unlocked Intel CPUs, or point me into the right direction.
Appreciate for any help.

OK, I see lack of support here, and I think I know why - all people here probably are thinking about BIOS overclock. I can say in this case - no it is too easy and simple. I am about to deal with Dell XPS 8300 and 2600K processor. Dell BIOS is locked, so I don't want to hear anything about proper way through the BIOS. 2600K has unlocked multipliers, so I need software basically to increase multipliers, with or without increasing voltage. I know that it is socket LGA1155 and chipset H-67, not much more.

Very smart and polite, and more important - provides valuable information about this forum.
Shame on you.
I think I stated before that I was able to overclock Phenom II x4 965 BE to 4 GHz on low voltage of VCore 1.39, overclock was done with AMD OVERDRIVE, my BIOS is locked as well, tested last Summer during hear wave with Prime95 and IntelBurn and passed!
So, I know that there are challenges to overcome and I am not complete noob here, just did not have a chance to deal with Intel yet.
And I wish I had Intel Dell so I could experiment, but I don't, so I need help.

Any smart suggestions?

Try something like this:

I haven't used software to overclock anything for many years, and even then it was just to tweak some ram settings to run a benchmark. A lot of people on this forum will suggest not doing it through software, but if it's a mild overclock it probably won't be much of a problem (even for a prebuilt dell).

There's a lot of other software on that site, just browse around and see what works for you.

Thank you for kind reply.
I will look there. I already found XTU myself and trying to figure out if it will work, also looking for PLL number for XPS 8300 motherboard, wish me luck. Again, if I have myself it would be much easier.
Thanks again.
If I succeed, I will post results here, so other XPS users can learn.

Sorry, I assumed you meant which CPUs had locked cores that could be unlocked. That info doesn't need a forum post to obtain.

If you meant "locked" to overclocking, all CPUs can be overclocked. You just need a motherboard with an overclocking BIOS or overclocking software. I've also used PowerStrip

I am dealing with locked BIOS on Dell XPS 8300, which has unlocked processor 2600K, which has to be overclocked on chipset H67, so Intel XTU or Control Center not going to work, so the only hope is PLL software, unless I am missing some other kinds of software. Changing motherboard is not an option!
