No option to Overclock

  1. Hey there,

    First off, my specs are in my sig

    Right my system is sorta bottlenecked by my CPU, i plan on getting a new one (amd 4000+) in august, but i wanna get a bit more out my system until then. So im wanting to overclock the one i got, but i seem to be having a hell of a time doing it. Now i know a wee bit about overclocking. I know that the FSB , multiplier, voltage etc are the targets in the BIOS. And i read up that the HTT defines the clock speed as well on AMD64 rigs (still researching bout that though :rolleyes: )

    But to get to the point, i have no settings in my BIOS for overclocking. I know what i'm after and it isnt there. Also in the manual, on the first page it says a bit about the Versions it on, an says next to it what it includes.
    Check this

    V1.6 Removing overclocking function
    Adding ATI RAID and Surroundview

    i am now on version 3.90 , which is a new one not long realeased ( and it has fixed a few problems for me) but they havnt added the overclocking function in. And there are no jumpers to alter the clock either

    The closest thing i saw to overclocking was the memory control, which only gave me this

    Dram Configuration

    Timing Mode [Auto]
    Memclock index value(MHZ) 200mhz
    CAS Latency (Tel) 2.5

    The bottom 2 were grayed out until you select Manual. But i wont go into detail here if it means nothing. There was also options to alter Gfx clock from Async and Sync an a few more options there but since thats not relevent i wont go into that.

    So does anyone know any good Windows Overclocking tools i could use? I looked for ages but the ones i got either just didnt work, or werent up to date enough for AMD64 processors (one even said i had a socket 754 :haha: ) Or if i'm going in the wrong direction please tell me :)

    Cheers guys

    I take it that msi's fuzzy logic wont work?

    Also, are you using a stock processor cooler? If so, i wouldn't recommend overclocking anyway.

    lol jesus i feel like a tit, i went through the list plenty of times looking for something , but i though it would be obvious if one of them was made for overclocking lol ill give this fuzzy logic a try

    an no i got a A64 Freezer HSF

    2nd one down (cept ts a 939 socket)

    Im not going to do a major overclock., its actaully to test a therey lol

    right fuzzy logic aint for workin , which is a shame because it looks ideal. the pc turns itself off an reboots when i try to run it. But i have a feeling there might be a BIOS option somewhere? possibly trying to prevent it from being tampered with. If so can ya let me know what it is lol an if not , if there any other programs ? :(
