It could just be that board has no support for overclocking...

Is your PC a OEM PC such as Dell, Emachines, Tiny etc?

If that is the case it is unlikely that the Bios will have any overclocking functions..... sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Make sure you are looking under the right heading.. it should be like frequency/voltage control, then set the cpu clock if its greyed out make it user set.

Hello again,

By what i mean an OEM pc (Original Equipment Manufacturer) is one that is built by a company (Dell for instance) as opposed to you buying individual retail items and putting them together yourself OEM PC's are renowned for having totally locked Bios's hence the question.

If you were to fill out your system specs in the user CP (top left of the forum page) we would have a better understanding of what kit you have and make a more informed answer to your question
