Yes you can use software to overclock it. Go to Major Geeks and you should be able to find programs to adjust your FSB in windows. You will probibly need to pull your MoBo and Identify your PLL (phased loop lock) but the read me file will tell you how to do that.

Also what you could try is to download SiSoft and use it to Identify your mobo and the see if you can get a bios update that allows overclocking for it.
