I'm not familiar with you mb so I'm not sure. It could possibly be labeled MCH voltage or something like that.

I guess this is the part where it turns out that my MB really is a piece of crap, since I can't adjust most of those things in my BIOS.

The closest BIOS pic to what I have, that I managed to find on the web is this:
THESE ARE NOT MY BIOS SETTINGS (but it shows about everything there is for me to adjust)


I really don't get why there isn't an aption to adjust the CPU multiplier.
Also, could the "FSB OverVoltage" refer to the Northbridge voltage?

No, the FSB voltage is different than the NB voltage. It couldn't hurt to try upping it a notch though and see if it makes a difference.

^this

There must be a multiplier control somewhere. Under another page maybe, CPU features or the like. You may be board limited due to lack of controls.

Also, try to see if your board has a mask on it. For me, I hit ctrl + f1 and it opens up tons more options. Use google for that one

Tried increasing it. No visible effect whatsoever.

I've looked through everything there is. The CPU multiplier option is simply nonexistent in my BIOS.

I already use Ctrl+F1. Found it in the MB manual. It uncovers the RAM timings, voltage and FSB voltage. The pic that I posted shows every option there is AFTER pressing Ctrl+F1.


Ok, so I gather that due to the lack of the CPU multiplier control in my BIOS there is not much I can do to go higher with the CPU, right?
Is there any point in fidling with the RAM or should I call it a day?

I say fiddle with the RAM and FSB voltages. If it's a no-go, then leave it.
