Can i overclock my computer?

This question is asked very often, the simple answer is that it depends what kind of motherboard you are using.

Proprietary Computer manufacturers such as Dell, HP, Compaq, Gateway, IBM and most manufacturers use Intel motherboards that have the necessary BIOS options locked. For those users there is always hope, you can try using software overclocking programs, they do not work as good but can give you a boost.

One of the best software overclocking programs is Clockgen

If you are using a custom built computer and do not know if your motherboard has the required options, please download CPU-Z and post its output on this forum to enable us to help you.

Yep, BIOS is the best place to overclock from.

However, if you have a motherboard that doesnt have the options, or you're attempting the new world record, and need to set insane fsb speeds, then clockgen is probably the best software you can use

The funny thing is that you actually need to buy some quality stuff to do good stable long lasting ocs. There are cheaper way outs though. Overall, if you know what you're doing it's better to oc cheaper cpus than pay mega$ for some of those high grade ones.
