It is probably not OCable, but you never know. You can look in the BIOS for the settings for the FSB, Multiplier and voltages for the components.

Warning: If this is your first time OCing, then you need to get as much info on the subject as possible before you start.

well, most computers that are brand name won't allow you to. first check your bios and look if you can edit your processor front side bus. If not, then the bios doesn't support it. the board might not either.
don't actually change it, but tell me if you have the choice to change it.
also, you'll want to buy an aftermarket cooler if you're going to overclock.
<update> Thorson Beat me to the point by a little bit :P

No worries josef. I have a light software OC, but I have always had OEM mobo's so never delved to far into this subject. I just know the fundamentals.

Rules:

#1 Backup. Make sure you know how to reset your BIOS to its original settings

#2 Baby steps. don't do high jumps in performance. Make small increments.

#3 Info. if you don't know what you are changing or why: Dont change it.

#4 Heat and Power. OCing creates high temps and draws power. make sure you have proper cooling and PSU.

#5 Stability. Test for stability often running for long periods of time. OC is not benificial if you crash your computer ever 30 minutes or burn your CPU.

#6 Magic Smoke. Computers run on this and if it escapes you will need new hardware. Period.

Last ones for laughs.

What's the name of this certain App? It had a black background/GUI, and it could tweak parts of W7, like disabling the Watermark, adding the "Take Control" thing on right-click menus, enabling DreamScenes, etc.
