post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok Here is my question I have an MSI MS-6540 Motherboard with a 3.0g Prescott, My Bios will not let me overclock anything(Only lets me change the timings on my RAM). If you think im doing something wrong or my motherboard doesnt support OCing, please Reply.
Anotherthing, would updating my Bios Give me more options, and how diffucult is that.

Thanks

From the model of your motherboard, it sounds like you've got a company computer, (i.e. compaq, dell) do you? or am I mistaken? If you do have a company computer, you won't be able to overclock.

Well, regardless, that board isn't that great, I read specs, and from what I found, its a Micro-ATX motherboard?

How about you get a fullsized motherboard w/ features.
