ive had to jump my pc 2 times now.

so all iam asking is can someone just help me with it,

all iam looking for is a simple oc bost.

Hi, and Welcome. I don't know much about that motherboard, I do know its a Micro board and most of them don't overclock well.

There is some FAQ's on the site for overclocking. but first you need to do some reading to understand your motherboard, so read your manual and our FAQ's on overclocking. once you do that then you will be able to ask the right questions.

Download cpu-z do a screen shot of each tad and post it in your next thread.

We need to know certain values that cpu-z will tell us before we can help you, like what your Htt is set to, your fsb, vcore, memory timmings and such.

Also check in your bios to see if its user friendly, if you can't adjust any thing in the bios then you will need a better motherboard.

Something is definitely wrong here..... your RAM is only running at 100 mhz - at least half of what it should be.... I don't have any experience with that mobo but make sure you have fsb and multiplier adjustments or else that mobo is useless for OCing. You should also make sure that Cool'n'Quiet is turned off, or else you can't adjust the multiplier. Look around for the RAM adjustments. What kind of RAM are you running? If it slower than DDR400, you might want to look into getting faster RAM.
