How to Overclock a Celeron E1400 Processor

Updated February 21, 2017

Intel Celeron E1400 processors are dual core processors developed for desktop computers. A CPU (Central Processing Unit) like the Intel Celeron E1400 handles data and tasks for the computer, effectively acting as the desktop's brain. The faster a CPU processor, the faster the desktop runs. Overclocking the Intel Celeron E1400 provides both the CPU and desktop a speed boost. The desktop PC's BIOS settings are edited to overclock the Intel Celeron E1400 processor.

Power up the desktop containing the Intel Celeron E1400 processor. Press and hold the desktop's "F11" key to enter the boot window. Choose the "BIOS Features" option from the window and press "Enter."

Choose the option called "External Bus" and press "Enter." Highlight the data entry found in the "Front Side Bus" field and press "Enter." Raise the data to the entry above the default selection and press "Enter." This speeds up the Intel Celeron E1400's front bus.

Choose the option called "CPU Core" and press "Enter." Highlight the data found in "Multiplier" and press "Enter." Raise the data by 1 and press the "Enter" key. This increases the Intel Celeron E1400's frequency multiplier.

Enter the main boot window. Press "Save and Exit." The Intel Celeron E1400 processor is now overclocked.


To revert the BIOS to their normal settings press "Restore to Defaults" in the boot window.


Overclocking generates more heat than is recommended for desktop PCs. Only overclock if the desktop has cooling systems available.
