Overclocking if a motherboard cant

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey all I have ran some searches on the forum but to no avail, maybe I am not wording it right. I want to overclock my my AMD Athlon 64 fx57 but my motherboard has no way to change the settings. Is there a way to do this with a program maybe? I have tried speedfan, but it hasnt worked:D If its not possible, should I worry aboot a new board, or just forget it? Thanks in advance!cheers.gif

Only chance is if you can change the multiplier and/or bus speed inside the OS itself. With for instance SetFSB.

Good luck with that though, doesn't work with all mobo's and I doubt it does with old ones.

Well SoftFSB may work.
Or get a new motherboard (I would do this)
