some mobos are more suited to overclocking compared to others. most newer boards have bios that is able to increase the cpu clock, while some older ones need jumpers to reconfig the clock. check out tom's hardware website.

but having said that, i really doubt the gains in overclocking the pc. in terms of clocking speed, a 10% increase may not be noticeable. and u need extra care in thermal management to cool off the cpu and ram.

Make sure before you overclock, learn about cooling first.

Agree with this. Overclocking only improves very little but may cause more damage.

As Bluestrike said there are many other suitable forums to ask these kind of questions.
