  1. I have an Intel D865GVHZ motherboard, where the overclocking options are locked out. http://www.intel.com/products/motherboard/d865gvhz/index.htm Is the page for my mobo. I have tried updating the BIOS which dosnt work, even though i have the old version, and want the new version. Here is my motherboard info from cpu-z

    No insult intended, but emachine computers are notorious for failing and crapping out due to their extremely cheap construction and poor quality. I wouldn't even attempt to try an overclock such a cheap computer. There are literally hundreds of complaints and postings about these computershere on techspot. Enjoy the computer while it lasts.

    Its been good for two years now lol, and im getting a new one, so frankly i dont care if the motherboard fries lol. This is to teach myself to overclock. But, my dad and my sister's computers are emachines, and they havent blown out or anything. Could you just tell me how t do what i stated in my first post :)

    It can't be overclocked sadly. Big computer companies like Dell, HP, etc etc use cheaper parts and disable the overclocking features of the BIOS because:

    a) The average PC buyer doesn't even know what a "clock" is in relation to a computer besides the one in the bottom right corner of windows :p and

    b) Having overclocking features would cause them to have to have more complex warranty terms because overclocking would obviously void the warranty.

    Even if it was enabled, the components (PSU, MOBO, RAM) that come with computers like this are generally low quality and would not be able to overclock very far anyway. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news... but you will have to practice on your new computer is seems... or get another Mobo for ur Celeron :p

    Whats the best board for OC'ing out of these three-
    Thanks for the help :)

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813138262 NVM, thats the only one out of the three that supports celeron D, is that a good OC board, or should i go more expensive.

    This will also be good practice for building a comp :), and it has onboard video, so i wont need to use power for a video card :).

    Here is a quote from newegg.
    Pros: Custom adjustability via bios, ram timings, CPU and RAM FSB adjustments, voltage's just about everything a budget gamer could want plus more, onboard video is very nice for standard use, easy to setup and clear cmos, match with 2.8 celey D 335 am able to overclock this CPU to 3.52ghz with a FSB of just over 166x21 with a ram speed of 410(205x2) 12hrs of Prime95 torture test over and over with no problems, powersupply is the only week point."

    I have a Celeron D 335 yay, now i can game until i buy my new computer.
