Have they got overclockable (if that's a word) CPUs? You need an unlocked multiplier

CPUs in my PC's I'm interested in OC'ing.
Intel Core 2 Duo T5550 @ 1.83 GHz (I know people say OC'ing on a laptop is pretty much impossible, but I've got nothing to lose)
Intel Celeron 900 @ 2.20 GHz
AMD Athlon 64 XD @ 2.2 GHz
Intel Pentium Dual Core @ 2.4 GHz

You also need to have a BIOS that has settings available for overclocking. I think 99% of factory PCs have that all locked out.

Crap. Oh well then, I'll wait till I get my money for my build. Is this system good for OC'ing?

This is where I was pleasantly surprised too. 32 on desktop 60 highest at load and on hot afternoons 70 to 75 though I do go down to 3.8 in the afternoons to be safe.

Yeah I burnt a c2e before and it was heart breaking though Thanks to the new architecture and smaller dyes its almost fool proof as long as you know the ceiling. Also set ups like mine do require higher than average power settings. It was worth a cold sweat and some shivers first time around.
