  1. The first thing you should do is look for OC'ing guides online. i will help you out and provide some links. But in the future always type into google "FAQ" and "guide" with what ever question or product you have.





    Time to read.... seriously though, or you'll fry your processor.

  2. Find another computer.

    Unless you have a new motherboard, you cannot. Dell does not include OCing options on there MBs, one of the many reasons I built my own this time around.
  3. Correct. The Optiplexes definitely won't, because they're more geared towards businesses. And businesses NEVER overclock.

    Get a new motherboard if you really want to overclock. And since Dell uses proprietary parts, for the most part (pun, sorry), good luck finding a motherboard that will work with the case and power supply.
  4. Dell = No OCing
