I advise against overclocking on that motherboard - it is known poor design and cheap voltage regulation modules, that tend to catch fire, if overclocked.
Get a low-end AM3 Asus or Gigabyte and then overclock smile.gif

Try Msi Dual Core Center. Allowed me to change voltage and I have the exact same mobo. Also, be careful. I thought I was giving the cpu +0.063 volts but misplaced the decimal and gave it +0.63 volts. Long story short computer shutdown, upon reboot I heard a loud pop, and it turned off again. Waited a couple minutes tried again; got another loud pop, but now it works.biggrin.gif So lucky. biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif But yeah, it might catch fire. smile.gif

Edit: Nvm think I killed my mobo with that....

It'll be fine with minor overclocking.... Doubt that 250 will go far anyways.

Use the bios for overclocking, it's usally better than sofware.

No bios voltage control. That's why I recommended dual core center.

Are you sure? I've never seen any non-OEM board have overclocking options but no voltage control.

You can overclock your CPU on this mobo but not too far. 1st of all you are limited by motherboard, 2nd generic 1333MHz C9 ram. Now start with overclocking. Enter Bios and follow this steps:

Turn off spread spectrums, turn off cool n quiet, turn off c1e, turn off LLC (load line calibration), change overclocking mode to manual, set FSB to 234 (you have 15X multi) = 3510MHz. Set your voltage to 1.45v (because stock voltage on athlon dual cores are 1.425v and 1.375v for phenom II's) set ram voltage to 1.65v. Drop HT link 1 time, Increase CPU NB voltage to 1.25v, drop ram 1 time (from 1333MHz to 1066MHz with overclocking it will reach around 1247MHz) and boot your PC. Download program called "Core Temp", download Prime95. Start Prime95 Small FFT's test , start Core Temp and check for temperatures for 3 hours at least. If you pass 3 hours it's enough i think (if you want to make sure that your overclock is 100% stable run this test at least 12~24 or even 48 hours) and check your temperature limit here on my guide-> http://www.overclock.net/t/1134229/amd-cpus-max-temps.

Aa then it's a huge problem. With stock voltages he can achive 214 fsb x 15 = 3210MHz = 3.21GHz.
