Overclocking with Intel?

  1. Ok so i got a lot of helpful info (or at least some) from my other thread here:

    But now i am wondering if by chance i could overclock my CPU using an Intel D915GAV mobo.

    I went into the BIOS and found absolutely no way to change any of the clocks, and there was a "Burn-in Mode" but that did absolutely nothing as well? Did i get completely !$@#ed with the PC I bought?

    If there is nothing in the motherboard manual, or on the website for that motherboard, your chances are pretty limited...

    It is looking that way :(

    I was hoping i could just overclock my PCU and not have to possibly having to buy a better one...but even then, the best that my current mobo supports are some higher end P4s, and no dual/quad cores :/

    If you bought your pc from a distributer or shop and its branded, chances are it will be bios locked against overclocking.
    Sorry, not much more to say really.
