Your system is O'cable, have you tried? have you read the faq's?
Go to bios and raise the fsb...start there, then ask specific questions. Try it man....You can do it!

Hey all...thanks for the replies.If I hit cntl & F1 in bios it only gives me a bios help screen...I do have settings in bios fcalled M.I.T.(motherboard intelligent tweeker) this has a lot of settings in it to O'clock. Also I have a Gigabyte tweeking utility called EasyTune5 which allows me to abjust CPUFSB,voltage,ratio) MEMvoltage,Freq.) I was using this to bring up the FSB and comp locks up at 214. Seems to be fine at FSB@212=2122.03mgz....Help...!!! Being new to this i dunno what to do next

Hiya! I was in a position very similar to yours! I just bought my Opty 144 and GA-K8NS Ultra-939 mobo a few days ago and counldn't wait to get started on the OCing, but found my self totally lost! But after some reading some threadfs in this forum it soon started making sense. I used the MB Intelligent Tweaker that comes up in the BIOS to do pretty much all the OCing. What you must do to get the CPU clock to go higher is that you must lower your HT multiplier to x4, and set the CPUDR ratio a bit lower (like 2.0:1.5). Then your CPU clock can go to about 250 or so. You must make sure that:
HT-multiplier x CPU Clock = From 800 to 1080
If it is more than 1080 your operating system will be unstable. So beyond a clock speed of 250Mhz you must change the HT-multiplier to x3.
You may want to give your CPU a little more juice by increasing the voltage (Vcore) BUT BE CAREFUL!! Dont increase it too much, you gotta read up on what others set their Vcore to.
Oh and you want to make sure that your RAM speed stays similar to what it is normally and thats why you have to lower the CPUDR ratio.
I hope this helps a bit! I am still kinda new to this overclocking business so I can't gaurantee success, but its worth a shot! Best of luck!!!

Make sure your bios is up to date with the latest revision. Download them from the Gigabyte website. Don't use that Easy Tune 5 it's not as stable as doing it directly from the bios and is limited to how far it can go up.

Don't use In-windows apps, they are much less stable than BIOS OCing. To access advanced settings on Gigabyte mobos, hit Ctrl + F1 in the BIOS.
