    I would go into the bios and set BCLK at 191 and Multi at 21 then set CPU voltage to 1.275V Also lower Ram speeds to the lowest they will go but due to them already being 1066mhz they maybe your limiting factor

    honestly 9 times out of 10 you will not find someone here that has a prebuilt machine such as a dell. Most people that are here built their machines by their own custom specs. This is why helping you OC a prebuilt is not gonna be easy. The best solution you may hear is buy a new motherboard that has better ocing features.

    I'd like to see a picture of the motherboard itself before I do overclocking on it. Many Dell motherboards aren't designed to overclock whether you can do it or not.
