How do I clock my processor in XP?

I've tried ctrl + F1 followed by DEL on boot up to get the CMOS configuration utilities which opened OK but the CPU speed was greyed out so I couldn't select it to clock it. Does anyone know what I should do now?

Sorry, you want to change it ... pass.

Dont do it!

If you are needing to set the CPU multiplier and it is greyed out in the Bios then you will have to adjust a jumper or dipswitch on the motherboard to set the frequency.

If you dont need to set this due to a CPU change or similar but are wanting to experiment with overclocking I would advise againt it. It sounds easy, it is easy, but get it 1mhz wrong and you fry the cpu!

Cooling is also a major factor and you will need to make sure your cooling is more than adequate.

Please...think carefully..very very carefully before attempting this.

Re: Multipliers could give you a BANG.

I know how to set them, but ussually it is just better set to auto.

Just be careful.

If it is grayed out then it is becuase the settings are on the motherboard via a switch or jumper.
