    step 1) replace motherboard with one that supports overclocking and the hardware you have.
    step 2) upgrade cpu cooling, northbridge cooling, add case fans.
    step 3) let me know when your done with those 2 steps

    Not going to be that easy with a Dell case or o/s. Forget o/cing a Dell.

    unfortunately I would suggest not even trying then. and if it did overclock it would be so little it would not be worth it anyways
