Rkoshy,

In general, there is only one way to overclock the Pentium processor by changing the jumper settings on the System Board.

Microprocessors manufacturers (Intel, AMD, Cyrix, IBM, etc..) always leave a safety margin above the maximum CPU speed. There is no strict rule regarding that margin, but I believe it is around 10%. Therefore hopefully your 233MHZ could be overclocked to 266MHZ but I doubt if you can make it work at 300 MHZ.
