    Sorry, but you can't overclock that computer.

    Yep, soulburner is correct. To be more specific, you will not be able to overclock any OEM Systems (I.E. Dell, IBM. Compaq). As well, the older Intel chipsets wont OC much. The new 875's will though. All the OCers here build thier own PCs from scratch, may be something to think about when its time for your next PC.

    For one its OEM. Two its an Intel board, and they don't allow overclocking anyway.

    The 2.4 is a great CPU, mine hit 3.5ghz today but without better cooling I can't get into windows at that speed to take a screenshot.

    The guys are right and Intel made motherboards don't overclock (Intel based motherboards are another matter altogether). :shrug:

    Another thing is that no matter what ya'll do with that particular core (eg: better motherboard) ya'll only get between 1080-1150MHz reliablely and this is the reason that the 1133MHz PIII was pulled from sale as in a lot of cases it couldn't run reliablely at it's rated speed. :(

    Best plan to build ya self a whole new rig which can do what ya want and turn the old one into a server and/or DC cruncher (PIII's still pull good DC times plus make great file/internet/print servers at the same time). :devil win
