OMG, how did you do that!?!?

I've never tried overclocking through software, so I wouldn't know.

What is it you're trying to achieve with this? Is it lacking in gaming performance? Just want to try it? The system is a bit old and not high end, but it's balanced okay as far as CPU and GPU go. Neither should be hampering the other too much (depending on use, of course, one will technically always be bottlenecking the other to a degree).

Be aware that without changing voltage, you'll likely only be able to go up a few hundred MHz, and this also depends on the RAM chipset too. Your temperatures need to be factored too. They look alright according to the link you posted, but I question them since some seem a bit unrealistically low.

Bios Mods work sometimes too. Get a modded Bios for the OEM board.

I am trying to get the games to load faster and games responding better. I've read about BIOS mods and they turn out ugly after flashing the modded BIOS, so i am not gonna take the risk.
