AMD Athlon 64 3200+

Is it possible (without much ado) to overclock this CPU,either by software and/or hardware?

In general, you can do this by increasing the FSB of the motherboard from 200 in small steps.  You have to have good quality RAM when doing this, and you need a motherboard that locks the AGP bus (if you have one) at 66MHz and the PCI bus at 33MHz.  Any SATA controllers will also need to be locked at a specific frequency.  You may also need to decrease the HTT multiplier to keep the system stable.
