    What do you need to know?

    Overclocking in done via the BIOS. If the Advent T9 has (which a quick google tells me it has) a Phoenix BIOS, then yes its possible. However, higher frequency plus higher voltage (heat) will ruin a CPU so you have to make only minor adjustments or make allowances for cooling.

    Yes I do.

    Here is a quick guide to overclocking with a Phoenix BIOS

    How to Overclock with Phoenix BIOS - How To Articles

    I would recommend reading this on Wikipedia too:

    Overclocking - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The main thing to worry about is the combination of higher frequency and heat. If you can remove the heat variable (via cooling or undervolting) then the frequency is not so much a problem. With the frequency alone, if you go to far, all you get is instability. with frequency and heat you can burn out your CPU.

    UK technical team leader for (IT) desktop support. I'm kind of like a 3rd line desktop support technician if you like.

    I look for experience, logic and a methodical approach. I've seen guys ripping into tcp/ip settings without checking the network cable is plugged in. I want someone who covers all bases.

    To me you can train someone how to fix something but I need someone to demonstrate they can work out how to fix something they dont understand.

    As for interview techniques, ask questions and engage. Its your personality you need to get across once you've proved you know what your cv says you know
