im lost -Compaq&#39s...

I have worked with Compaq desktops &
servers since they were all 486's, and have
never found any that were any good
for OC'ing.

I think most of these come setup OC'ed
from the factory !

None of the CPQ BIOS settups I have
seen include the options needed to OC.

I attempted fiddling with the jumpers on
a few that had them, but invariably got
windows lockups and BSOD syndrome.

Good luck.....
