What you're thinking about is called overclocking. See this thread for definition:

Overclocking is done by increasing the clock or multiplier setting in your BIOS (these are jumper setting on the motherboard for older systems)

When overclocking, the CPU will run hotter and a good CPU fan is required.

I'd recommend you read up a bit on overclocking before you try increasing the speed of anything in your computer. Have a look at a few sites on overclocking and make sure u know what you're doing before changing any settings. If you want some links to sites let me know. As already stated overclocking can result in irreversable damage to your computer. If you want to give me the specs of your computer I might be able to help you if you want.
