Can't change voltage of 720 X3 Phenom II

  1. I have a Gigabyte AM2 motherboard (ga-ma69g-s3h)
    I used to have an option to change the cpu voltage with my old dual core 5000+ cpu.
    with this cpu, that BIOS option is gone!
    furthermore, I can change the voltage through gigabytes windows utility (easytune 5), but then when I also try to change the multiplier in windows it doesn't change anything and the speed of the cpu remains the same.
    I'm stuck at stock voltage and 3.3GHz overclock (which is not bad but since it can get to 3.7ghz I'm missing out).

    You might need to update your BIOS.

    Have you tried using the AMD Overdrive Utility?
