People are overclocking the Intel E1200

I could not find anything useful on a MSI p4m00m3

Are you sure that is the correct model number of your board?

Do some more studying on overclocking.
Adjustments to the motherboard's BIOS allow you to overclock your CPU, there is nothing on the motherboard itself that is overclockable. The only things that can be overclocked are the CPU, the Memory, and the distinct graphics card if you have one.
That said, the E1200 should be overclockable but if your motherboard was supplied with a factory built machine, you will probably lack the adjustments in your BIOS that will allow you to overclock at all. Components made for factory built machines are all of a lesser quality than you would need for the extra stresses of overclocking so the factories have the BIOS' written so that this is not possible. This is done so they do not have excessive warranty claims from those who attempt overclocking on their hardware.
To confirm this post the exact make and model of your system. If this was a custom machine, confirm the model number exactly and completely by opening the machine and carefully looking at the markings on the motherboard and the labels on it.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I'm guessing you left out a 9 in the model number. Could it be an MSI P4M900M3-L?

The E1200 is a low end Celeron which is clocked at 8 x 200MHz (1.6GHz). Your board officially supports up to 1066MHz FSB, so that would be the place to start. Bump up the CPU frequency from 200MHz to 266MHz, lock the PCIe bus at 100MHz, configure the RAM to run at 533MHz, & the CPU will run at 2.13GHz with a CPU:DRAM frequency ratio or 1:1.

Also IGP can be overclocked.
