AFAIK the answer is no since the processors themselves cannot be oveclocked in the Z800.

Yes, but it is not recommended and it wont ever happen in a Z800 unless someone else creates the BIOS. Since the Z800 is an "old" machine i doubt very much that HP will create it.

 

The successor of the Z800 was the Z820 and the current model is the Z840. If i remember correctly the Z800 was released in spring 2009. I may be wrong on the release date. 🙂

You would have much more luck with a Zx20 since its i) an AMI bios and ii) based on UEFI, so there is a whole range of tools to analyse / edit the bios.

 

Using Uefi tool and then IFR extractor on the Z420 / Z620 bios it is clear that there are a multitude of advanced menus which are hidden from the user (inlcuding voltage, turbo adjustments etc.) I have a pretty good idea of how to get these unlocked in a safe / non invasive way but since I no longer have a Z420 I don't have the means to do the testing.
