Branded system: black box PC, no tinkering -> no overclock.

Is that the same with all compaqs or worse the whole HP i think . I do want to buy a good 2nd lappy or a new desktop , to replace or better the older normal desktop which is a Gaiax8 i thinj it was it is old p4 giga 1.7ghz.
i was thinking replacing the board with a HP .
I look around if lappy can be at least 10% or better at overclocking easy in bios aswell a software overclocking programs, as the Giga pc can be clocked to 1.93ghz before i experience problem there and above that.

If a 400 Mhz FSB is the highest the mobo features, that is the limit. But if there is an optional 533 Mhz FSB, then possible you may get a bit better performance. The bigger the "pipe", the more water can flow, so to speak. A BIOS update would not allow a FSB change, unless the chipsets had the feature embedded to begin with. The service tag on the unit would show the model # and service # for that specific unit. It is unique. For the 400 Mhz FSB, you are at the speed limit. But if a processor with larger L2 cache level were used, some performance gain would be noted.. as this is where instruction sets are at hand for operations. The OS would not need to re-read the programming so often.
