Can I overclock with LENOVO THINKSTATION C20 + Intel Xeon X5670 ?

Hi all.

I would like to OC my CPUs but I cant find any controls in the bios. Can it be done?

The mother board is a Lenovo 1366 pin LGA Model 5520

 

Thanks.

Welcome to the forum.

 

The C20 doesn't have BIOS controls for overclocking.

 

Ideally you would need a motherboard specifically designed for overclocking. However, the C20 board and chassis are proprietary, so finding an aftermarket board for the C20 chassis and PSU would be a challenge if not impossible.
