Hey there, this is my first post here and I was wondering if I could get a little help.

I am trying to overclock my old computer but I am unsure how as there don't seem to be any OC settings in my BIOS

Here is the info:

Bios Version/Date: Pheonix Technologies, LTD MC61V008, 15/05/2007
System Manufacturer: Packard Bell BV
System Model: ISTART 2311
CPU: AMD Athlon X2 6000+

Most OEM systems don't have overclock settings in the BIOS. You can try overclocking software, but for the most part, it's a waste of time.

✔ Best Answer
OEM computers usually don't cope well with the added stresses of overclocking. Knowing this, manufacturers usually omit the settings for overclocking from the BIOS. This saves you from overclocking related failures and then from the resulting warranty claims.

Overclocking is best confined to home built computers where you have control over the quality and specifications of the components.
