locked out?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello,
I have searched high and low for the answer to this question. I've spent round about 2 hours now. I am running AMD's Athlon 64 3800+ "Venice" processor with Pheonix Award BIOS. I am attempting to overclock the CPU, but when i enter the BIOS the "CPU Speed" is the only available thing and it is greyed out. No multiplyer or Bus speed that i can see... Any help?

Either the MB has no options or you have to change something from Auto to the likes of User or spmething.
System Specs can be added via the USER CP at the top of the page

You need to provide your motherboard model. Pheonix Award BIOS is used on many many motherboards, and the basic Pheonix Award BIOS program is customized by the manufacturer to reflect the settings they want, so two motherboards with Pheonix Award BIOS can have completely differant settings.

Well that motherboard may not support overclocking in anyway or form. W need to know the motherboard details before we can help.

It's actually an Asus board with 6150 chipset but all the possible tweaking options have been taken out of the bios. You might be able to flash it with a real Asus bios but I would NOT recommend it! It might not boot again!
