When a computer user wants to alter the settings of his hardware and speed it up faster than originally intended, this is known as overclocking. Most computer enthusiasts who wish to overclock generally speed up their CPU processor, such as a Pentium 4 processor. Most overclockers are also computer gamers looking to boost their hardware specifications to get more out of a graphically demanding game. Overclocking a Pentium 4 processor is no different than any other CPU.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Restart the computer. This will load your BIOS settings instead of the operating system into the computer.

  2. 2

    Press the "Right" key over to "Frequency." Press "Enter" on "RAM" to set it to "Unlinked."

  3. 3

    Alter the "Front Side Bus" numbers as desired. Avoid raising the numbers by more than five at a time. For example, if the number listed is 100, type 105. Press "F10."

  4. 4

    Restart your computer.
