    I want to overclock my Intel celeron 333 MHz processor. the problem is that my motherboard won't let me on the board itself, or in BIOS. can anyone tell me a way around this or a program that will do it? the motherboard is an Intel AL440LX. :confused:

    Are you sure? Usually the old boards like that let you change the multiplier

    i'm pretty darn sure. i am positive there is no switch or jumper on the board. And for some reason it is not in bios

    There are 3 reasons why you can't overclock your system:

    1. Intel-manufactured boards almost never have overclocking features built in, and they only support the standard FSB speeds like 66, 100 and 133MHz
    2. Your motherboard's maximum FSB is 66MHz (as it has an LX chipset, the next chipset after yours, the BX, was the first to support 100MHz), your processor is already running at 66MHz FSB
    3. You can't change the multiplier on a Celeron 333 CPU, it is locked

    If you want more speed, I suggest replacing your CPU with a faster Celeron (e.g. 533, make sure it's a PPGA Celeron and not an FC-PGA one). You may need a Slotket (Slot1-Socket370 converter) to get it to fit, these can both be picked up 2nd-hand quite easily, try ebay. A good one to get is the Abit Slotket III.
