Hi and welcome.

You possibly could, but I'm curious why you want to go exactly to 2.4GHz?

As that motherboard generally comes in HP computers you won't be able to overclock it unless you move it to a different computer... which I'm guessing kind of defeats the purpose?

Cheers

With respect, it's a six year old machine. It won't cope with today's games.
Overclocking it with an aim to play modern games, it's not going to be overclockable as it's a HP board and those options were deliberately removed when the machine was built.

Unfortunately the way the cookie crumbles in the PC gaming situation is they're build around the hardware of today, not 2004.
