    Any name brand PC is hard to overclock, as the Bios doesn't allow overclocking. Althought SoftFSB could yield some results, if you know your motherboard model

    I also have a non brand computer with an AMD K6 processor running at 330mhz, default system bios, 96mb ram, at 2.2v. Any tips for overclocking this?

    I wouldn't even bother with that setup...no matter how far you take it, its still going to be slow by today's standards.

    However if you want to know, its done through the use of dipswitches on the board itself...
