    Older motherboards can be irreversibly damaged by attempting to over clock much more than the newer boards with built-in OC options

    Yeah I just don't think it's worth your time, you'd be better off just upgrading in my opinion. Also software overclocking yeah.. Don't really trust it myself.

    Basically, if your BIOS/Board doesn't allow you to, it's probably not designed to accommodate OCing.

    Sorry mate :(
