Need help overclocking Athlon II X4 640

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I can't overclock my processor over 3.16 GHZ because the voltage is greyed out in the BIOS. How do I change the voltage?

My board: MSI K9N6PGM2-V2 (MS-7309)

Have you changed CPU VDD to something other than AUTO? Once you do that the other options should become adjustable.

my suggestion to you is up your knowledge before you start any overclocking process.
just give it a solid 2 days and learn as much as you can before you try anything.

just sayin man. theres alot to factor in when you overclock the front bus.
not just your cpu. but your ram, video card, etc. everything gets affected and until
you know for sure what your doing, i wouldnt advise doing anything

There must be another setting that is greying it out.

EDIT: Google searched, and seeing a lot of people not being able to adjust that.

Is this an actual MSI board? Or is it a MSI built HP/Compaq board?

I really don't think this board is at all built for overclocking. I mean, look at the cheapness... 3+1 phase... non-solid caps... 2-transistor design... tiny chipset heatsink.... I think this is more a prebuilt motherboard than anything else really

It's MSI. This is a cheap "upgradable" gaming computer that I bought off Amazon. I think it's CyberpowerPC or something similar.
