    Please bear with me as this will be a bit long. I have a question about overclocking, a question about putting a new CPU, and a question related to the two previous ones.

    I have a Dell Vostro 1510 notebook with the following specs:-
    -CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo T9300 2.5Ghz "FSB 800Mhz" 6MB L2 Cache 45W
    -IGP: Intel X3100 (@500Mhz)
    -4GB DDR2 677Mhz

    I want to OC the notebook. My temps right now are 49C, I think these are good.
    I can decrease temps further by up to 10C by using thermal paste.
    I can implement some cooling mods, specially that I don't use my laptop very much as a portable device. I will even use it as a file/computing server soon, so I will be able to implement even better cooling.

    So, yeah, my notebook has the capacity for some overclocking, can you help me do it? I have some questions:-
    A) Will modding the bios definitely lead to ability to OC?
    B) Will FSB modding (or Volt modding) etc... (by insulation a pin, or connecting two pins) succeed in my notebook?
    C) setFSB and all these don't work for my notebook, so no need to suggest them, my PLL probably will never be supported.

    Also, I may buy a better CPU, what will happen if I put a CPU with 1066 FSB?

    Also, will a CPU with unlocked multiplier (yet without OC support at BIOS) help in OCing?

    Thank you.
