Anyway to Overclock this board?

  1. Here are my specs:
    Mobo = MSI model# MS-7253
    Processor = AMD Athlon 64 x2 5000+ (Black Edition)
    RAM = 2gb (667mhz)
    Video Card = 8500gt
    PSU = 450watt

    I got the 5000+ black edition because I keep reading where I could get it to 3.0ghz. The first PC I built was easy to overclock, but I don't have any options in my BIOS on this mobo. Can I not overclock this board or what can i do?
    Thanks in advance!


    Nevermind I found it

    looks like you can't change the multiplier with the bios (got that from a german site) . Maybe a bios update will change that but not sure. What did you end up finding out for future reference?

    I changed the FSB from 200 to 232 now running at 3.02Ghz

    I also notice all my temps are in 30 range and goes up to 40 on a decent load (still on stock {the one that came with my ADM 3400+ Sempron} heatsink/fan) , but my video card seems to be the highest at around 50+ degrees. Is that normal? I didn't make any changes to the video card and it was running that high before I even changed processors. Should I place a slot fan under it to cool it down?

    I think your video card temps are within a normal range.
