OC a machine for the gray masses

You could trry a program like cpucool from www.podien.de

Or you could replace the motherboard with one which isn't castrated.

Check the motherboard to see if there are any Jumpers or switches to change the FSB. I had an older HP Pavilion who's BIOS was dumbed down, but it still had switches and I got a lil' OC outta it. In that specific case, there was a little table right next to the switches indicating what each setting did. Worth a look! :)

Otherwise there are programs such as CPUfsb and softFSB as mentioned before that raise the fsb.

Here!

Click on utilities, then "motherboard and cpu tweak files". For some reason when I tried linking directly to that page it didn't like it. :(

That's from Pinky's site that's in his sig. There's a ton of goodies to be had there!
