Re: Overclocking

Take a look at the AnandTech Forums, HardForum and Tom's Hardware Forum. You must also like to take a look at the forums of your motherboard's manufacturer.

You have a laptop computer; it is more than likely that the BIOS will not allow overclocking for that unit. Most laptops cannot be overclocked for good reason; they have limited resources and poor cooling engineering. O/clocking produces high heat and they just don't have the setup for additional cooling. For the most part that also applies to most retail desktops as well. The majority of overclockers use custom-built units with CPUs adn motherboard BIOS' that are set up for overclocking, such as Asus and Asrock boards. I overclocked my home build unit, but installed a water cooled system and extra case fan. Standard retail etail units are just not set up with that kind of quality.

Can I overclock the Dell XPS 8300?

Your processor can be overclocked by increasing the multiplier either via BIOS settings, or by using Intel's Desktop Control Center. It's worth noting that overclocking will void your warranty, cause your CPU to generate more heat and may cause your CPU to become unstable.

I want to overclock my cpu but i dont know in the bios how to go :s please help me sory my english i´m portuguese :)

This is most likely impossible to do with the BIOS on your system. You may have to resort to software overclocking, but I strongly suggest not doing so as results are unreliable.

If the above is difficult to understand because of the language, please let me know and I will say it differently.

How do i overclock my pentium 4 ht 630 with a ecs 945gct-m3 mother board?

Overclocking a system leads most of the times to replacing the system. If you need a faster system, build one. If you overclock yours, you may end up building a new one anyway, and your system is still competitive, you don't want to trash it.
Nobody will take the risk to teach somebody how to overclock a system.

Overclock an Intel E6300 on a GA-8I945GZME-RH motherboard

You need to check your BIOS. If you can overclock you will see a selection for CPU and speed in BIOS. If not there then your motherboard does not allow you to overclock your CPU.

Raising stock processor speed.

Sorry my friend but Dell doesn't support overclocking.You need a new motherboard and power supply and a better cpu heatsink to overclock your Dell. You would need extra fans too. They lock there BIOS settings as far as 1:1 clocking to prevent troubleshooting issues and they want you to buy something faster if you want something faster. I don't know how old your machine is but any attempt at overclocking would also void the warranty. They even recommend using just one brand of memory even though there are many that would work.
