    My computer doesnt allow OC in bios. Is it my motherboard or processor that isnt allowing this? i have a CM1730-05 motherboard and 1065 T procsssors.

    Which one is keeping me from Overclocking?

    "Common sense" should keep you from overclocking and damaging or shortening the life of your machine. It is much better to just buy a machine that already has the capabilities that you want.

    It is the BIOS that has the controls for all of that, though some CPU's are blocked internally. Some can be enabled by drilling holes and creating traces or breaking ones already there, but this is very fine work that will likely kill the CPU.

    Overclocking settings are configured in the BIOS, and what you try is based on what type of processor is installed.
