    925x good overclocker?

    I have an old dell dimension 8400 , it has an intel 925x mobo, i know very few things of this mobo , I know it support 800mhz of FSB and ddr2 533 .
    I think the cpu is bottlenecking my 7950gt so i want to buy a c2d 4300 or a pentium dual core 2140, these are good overclockers but i don't know how good my mobo is overclocking, any idea.
    Shuld i go for it or save for a new rig

    thanks in advance eden

    1-dont think so 2-dell mobos should have nil oc options.

    add a couple 120mm fans overhead to drop temps by 10+ celsiusD.S.C-12(2)-disclaimer : whatever u do with your hardware/software is your
    responsibility, which i dont hold if u break anything

    I have an 8400 as well (actually my wifes now)

    Sorry but the 925 chipset won't support duel core procs and as far as ocing its like dan said the bios has Zero overclocking options.

    You could try replacing the mobo but you have to mod the case and if I remember correctly the psu is propitiatory as well so you would have to replace that as too.
