Hit a Snag with my Motherboard

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Alright, so I'm following the guide posted about overclocking cpu's and was ready to do some testing in raising my CPU speed and vdd outage but then I noticed on the selection screen these options are greyed out without any means of turning them to manual. I could play with the DRAM settings and CAS but couldn't even after addressing the scance manual figure out a way to tinker with the good stuff. Am I going to be (EDIT) blocked by my motherboard?

Your board should have came with a CD, which should have a program called 'nTune' on it. You can use that to OC.

Thats what your manual says

Okay, so I installed the chipset ntuner but something is still blocking me. Either that jumper or something or rather. I pulled the side panel off my case and laid it down to play some Wheres Waldo and I just couldn't find the FSB1 pin nor find it on the Legend in the booklet
