Hers a list of compatible PLLs:

Sometimes if its not in the list you can try closely related numbers until it overclocks, you will be able to move the slider if your selection works, if not, keep trying other selections. Monitor CPU RAM speed in CPUZ. Monitor temps using SpeedFan.
Thank you, but how do I then find out who made the Dell motherboard?

Thanks for the opinion guys!
PLL code is something you will find near the pcie slot of gpu written in a rectangular boxed chip.
Actually Q6600 is 105w and Q8400 is 95w and 65nm and 45nm respectively so there would be some spare wattages which sometimes need my q6600 to fix its BSOD crash issue while bf1 .
I think my q6600 crashes because of psu so extra wattages would be good,
Therefore i'll look forward to sell this and get a q9650 or else something better second hand(i5-i7 series)
