    Lets put this another way... Low-end motherboards don't generally include options for you to overclock. The main reason for this is because these manufacturers mainly serve the OEM market. With a very limited BIOS selection, you are in essence lowering your required technical support requirements. Also, older models didn't add the option because it was an unheard of trick of a few enthusiasts.

    This doesn't mean that overclocking is out of the question but you will likely need some detailed schematics, some wire, a soldering iron and some extreme skillz! :D

    If I know what cpu you got in that qdi board, I may be able to give some pointers and a few tricks for speedin it up. Also need to know what kind of ram. I have not used that exact board but have used in my rig and configed a few of 10b/f's. That 6e board doesnt have speedeasy.

    Well, I remember trying software oc'ing with my old qdi board. Just to see how it worked, I tried this SoftFSB and when I dig up the other links, I will post them. Some worked better than others, and others did not work at all. That board had everything in the bios so it was just for kicks. Since you got the first 100mhz cpu in the celeron line, things may work out fine. But the ram will probably hold you back. Try it a bit at a time. Also on boards with intel 810 chipsets, the onboard audio will protest.
