Overclocking Question

#1
So I'm running a pretty horrible spec'd PC. Not going into details, but this is the bench from CPU-Z.

Is it possible to overclock this CPU? I've seen google stuff that say yes, but most were very old.

(I've gotten answers on another site that it can be, if motherboard and such is right. Problem is I don't know how to tell and can't find straight answers. I'm too high to work Google.)


Idk what all info is useful, so I used CPU-Z and got this stuff:

Overclocking is RISKY. There are many who tried it and got BSODs (Blue Screen of Death).
The only way to find out if it is or not possible is by trying it.
Be WARNED!

LMFAO. Have you read my specs? I appreciate the heads-up, but it's all crappy parts/crappy PC. So I'm not worried.

Then give it a try.

A lot of CPUs are clock-locked which means it's not possible to overclock them, plus overclocking is really only beneficial for CPU intensive applications like games. Everyday workloads won't benefit from overclocking.

Overclocking can be risky, but only if not researched properly and if you're getting BSODs due it you're doing it wrong.

If you have the options available in BIOS then you may be able to overclock. You'll likely have to adjust the settings and test as Windows may crash with the settings too high. https://www.quora.com/How-can-you-overclock-an-Intel-Core2-Duo-E8400
Post edit. Problem solved. (Not over clocking issue)

If there is no device at all then it's either hardware disabled or the device is bad.
