vostro 430 overclock

hi im new here and im just getting back into computing.

i just bought a cheap tower vostro 430 i5 750.

came with 4gb ddr3 1333 and nvidia 310 gpu 350w psu.

quad core 2.66ghz turbo 3.2 ghz.

iv now got 12gb ddr3 1333, radeon r9 270 powercolour 2gb gddr5.

500w psu

is there anyway to overclock these machines. bios is 2.1.0 and i cannot see anything in the setting to modify the cpu output. is there a way of doing it. also can i run 1600mhz ddr3 ram aslo cannot see anything in settings to change ram output any help would be great.

ps i havnt used a computer in about 12 years so a little bit rusty.

so far ive spent a little under £200 for tower and upgrades. on a very low budget just trying to match ps4 graphically so i would like the processor to run upto 3.8 ghz

ive installed something to overclock the gpu. just cant work out the cpu.

i will build another pc in time when i have the money 2. good starter to learn on

Sorry to say, the Vostro 430 does not have the ability to be overclocked.
