Hello, benjy206 and welcome to Seven Forums. If you would, please fill out your system specs. That would help us to be able to help you. If you have a pre manufactured computer, like Dell, HP or others, the bios is locked and there is really no way to overclock. That is why they lock the bios. If you have a custom made computer, fill out the system specs and maybe someone can help you.

Thanks for the reply. Yes well the one i wanted to try it on is a dell. But I have a lenovo g550 also but I don't want to try that because it's a laptop so you know yourself. So there is no way with dell then?

You can try software like setfsb. This will not increase the temperatures.but remember you can only go so far without needing to bump up voltage.

Ok, I have done the Windows experience test, and the results were same as before overclocking. After i closed the window, i noticed that the CPU gadget was showing some weird cpu usage?!?! the percentage bar says that the processor is running @ 10-20% of full speed, while the chart shows 0-100% (see attachment). And the RAM usage went from 20-25 to 40%

What is happening?

Here's what Task manager says

CPU temp is @ 30C
