I have software called easytune 5 that came with my motherboard, though its motherboard specific and will likely not work with yours. most overclocking software are motherboard specific and do not work all that well-for example using easytune 5 will only give my CPU a 200 mhz overclock stable, while I know my CPU is capable of at least a 700 mhz overclock. Most serious overclockers overclock manually via the BIOS because doing it that way is safer and provides a more stable environment that the overclocking software cannot give you. However, I would still encourage on never to overclock, I dont in my system because overclocking is dangerous and hard on equipment. Even with excellent cooling, liquid or air, it still subjects the CPU to undo heat and stress it doesnt need, and if you make an mistake overclocking it you can do some serious damage. even if you do it right and overclock it to the bare line of what the CPU can handle it can damage it over time-my recomendation is if your CPU or video card cannot do what you want it to do stock, then its time to upgrade-all the systems I build for myself or for customers I build to do what they need to do on stock, and still have power left over. And I tell them if they overclock then it voids my warranty, and it definetly voids the manufacturers warranty. yes, they may make the CPUs to be overclocked so as to sell better, but if you read the fine print overclocking still voids the warranty on parts.
