there is no point in overclocking a dell. because they lock the settings

try software overclocking but i tried and it put the cpu right back to the stock...

so for christmas i just swapped everything.

Your gonna have to crack the case open and take a look around. Look for Letters numbers or both, also youll need to figure out what your clock generator is, its the chip next to the little silver crystal that has a number starting with 14.*** chip will prably have ICS or CY stamped on it then some numbers like 950240(give or take a couple). Its gonna take some time to figure everything out, download a software program to overclock and then set it up. My suggestion would be to just go out and buy a retail board that works with your system, can find some pretty good overclockers for under $100.

Welcome to the forums.


If you go with a new mobo, be cautioned that some Dell systems use proprietary PSUs that will not work with "normal" motherboards. The stock PSU probably won't support a very good PSU, so it would be a worthwhile upgrade.

Dell PSU are all NON STANDERED.

So basicly, if you use a new mobo and dell PSU, you fry the motherboard and vice versa.

Problem is, is the fact the case is probobly Micro ATX, so a good motherboard is hard to find.

Can you tell us your budget? or what you want to do with teh computer?
