Okay all you have set so far is voltages.
To change the FSB enter the bios. Move to Frequency/Voltage control hit enter.
You'll then see FSB & Memory Config move to it and hit enter.
Then you will see FSB- Memory clock mode hit enter
You should see FSB - Memory Clock mode hit enter and unlink hit enter again (for now)
After you do this you will now be able to make changes to the FSB(QDR) MHz (it should show 1333)
Initially I would move in small steps. Run the FSB to 1350 and hit enter.
Move down to
MEM DDR MHz Manually set the appropriate memory speed 800 1066 etc. Actually i just saw you have 4 by 2 GB, for now I would actually set this one step down. If it should be 1066MHz I would use 800Mhz, that much memory can be a problem with an OC.
You should also see at the bottom of the page memory timing enter it and Manually set your timings for tCL, tRCP, tRp, tRAS and CMD according to your memory specs.
After you have done this then hit F10 and select yes, save settings.
If this loads into windows without a hitch then, go back into the bios save the settings with the save function. Use whichever slot you wish. I always use 1 so if I have to reset I can just reset the mobo and try again from a known good setting.
Next move the FSB to 1375, you may want to move the CPU voltage up one spot, but that may not be necessary, I'd try without first. Once you get to 1400 FSB, then I would start testing the OC with Prime 95 or I personally use OCCT. Then every step beyond that again test with Prime or OCCT also download and use Real temp to make sure your CPU temps are not out of control while stress testing.
It is a time consuming process, I stress test overnight to make sure the OC is good, and temps are not insane. Hope this helps.
