I have an Dell L1000R, it has an Intel 810e motherboard and an Pentium III 1GHz coppermine, are there any softwares like Fuzzy Logic(MSI) for Intel hardware that can auto overclock the CPU? Or can anyone tell me which clock generator I have? I am no novice at overclocking AMD CPU's, but I am so with name brand computers like Dell, and also with Intel CPUs. Thanks a mil! Peace!

sorry, won't be able to do anything with that machine, or any other proprietary manufacturer's stuff.
That is not necisarily true. It will be vary tough to do anything, but I think there are programs like SoftFSB (or something like that) that will let you adjust the bus speed under Windows. I can't help you much. The only Intel overclcoking I have had was with an old P-233MMX that I run at 112Mhzx2.5 for a whoping 280Mhz. I did play around with an old Celeron 433, but I adjusted the bus speed in BIOS to 75Mhz, but it ran pretty hot with the stock cooler, so I backed it off to stock speeds. It was a system for a friend's kids I built several years ago.
I use H. Oda's SoftFSB program to overclock my Gateway P2-233 to 280mhz (66mhz FSB to 80mhz FSB, max). Decent increase. However, I do not use this machine for any apps. It is just my server sitting in the corner, but I wanted it to be able to react as fast as possible to inet and file requests. I don't think the i815 is on the list in his software though. I know there aren't even any KT133 boards listed on it anyways. I'm always looking for better overclocking software, so if you find any, please post it!
Here's a few apps I found for you. Some may/may not work depending on your board/OS/etc.
BusRacing - This is a utility from MSI to adjust FSB on their i810e and i820 series of boards. The chipset is the same; however, the clock generator may not be. Give it a try!
CpuCool 6.13 - I'm sure you have heard of the popular CpuCool program. It allows for the changing of FSB/multi (when applicable) and gives hardware monitoring, including hard drive status through S.M.A.R.T. Also, for what it was first designed for, it cools your CPU when idling, and in most cases when running under some load.
H. Oda's SoftFSB 1.7g1 - The aging program written by H. Oda. Probably his most popular piece of work. It allows for changing the FSB of your motherboard if it is listed (I don't think Dells are). However, I have a Gateway 2000 OEM board taht I found out was an Intel AL440BX manufactured specially for Gateway. Check if the same is true for your board, and you will have a better chance of finding some good software. Another option is knowing your clock generator make and model. This can be found on your motherboard, usually a chip about 7mm by 15mm or about that.
Gigabyte's EasyTune III v3.1 - Gigabyte's utility for changing the FSB/multi (when applicable) of their boards. Possibly work for yours, why not try it?
CpuBoost - Small utility to change "CPU frequency" on "some boards" so I don't know if it is meant for FSB or multi or both, or even what boards it will work on.
NewSpeed - Small DOS-based utility (will work in a DOS console within Windows) that is meant to rewrite the multiplier/FSB in the flash memory of the BIOS or something for Intel chips. Sounds kind of neat. I was able to run it on my machine (AMD), even though it would not give info or write anything, though I didn't expect it to. I jsut wanted to make sure it would work.
Well I hope at least one of these programs work out for you. If they don't, let me know and I'll look for more.
