1. Use software called ClockGen, which will overclock your RAM aswell so don't go to a large overclock very quickly, it might not even recognize your motherboard so it might not work.

2. After you get it to a likeable overclock stress test with OCCT/Prime95. Use a program like CoreTemp or SpeedFan and track temps. It can get pretty hot in a Dell.

3. If all goes well you'll be good to go. I have no idea if ClockGen will recognize your motherboard tho.
