How to overclock my E2140 Processor, and a suitable motherboard for it.

Karthikk

Right off the assembly line
Yes, I did see other posts, but they did not tell me HOW to exactly do it, and I had a few doubts
1)The posts suggested that I can simply increase my FSB in the BIOS menu. If that is locked, how to unlock it?
2)Somewhere else I read that if I change some jumpers connected to the processor, OCing can be done. Is it vague or is it true? If its true, can it be done?
3)As mentioned in my previous post, http://www.thinkdigit.com/forum/pc-components-configurations/152585-upgrading-my-old-system.html , I am looking for a suitable motherboard, which can let me overclock. A friend of mine told me that if I can overclock my processor, I could us a higher graphic card(Gaming one)
All help is sought for, especially for option 3).
Thanking in advance...

you mean that specific option is locked or the Bios is password protected?
If the option is locked there will be an option somewhere on same menu to set fsb speed manually.

card(Gaming one)
which higher graphic card is he talking off? 5450 Hd? Gtx 460?
Also the processor you are using would bottleneck and decent mid-end card [like 5670 Hd]
and you really would need to most probably have to buy a new power supply.
