If you want the CPU to run faster you should have bought a faster laptop. You can't overclock these babies because you can't get the extra heat out properly...

Isn't the HP d5000t a desktop?

There's usually no way to overclock an OEM board. Better get a decent retail board but make sure the RAID-Controller is the same or you may have to recreate your RAID-system (backup data before changing motherboard)

Thanks.
where's ones coffee when you need one... thanks for the heads-up. Even so, it is an OEM-board that is designed to work as cheaply as possible to make, not to be tweaked.
