Mobo BIOS Missing OC Features?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, I am quite new to overclocking and to the site, so my apologies if I am asking very basic questions and posting in the wrong section. After hours of research, I still have not found an answer so I'd thought I asked on the forum.

Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-M68MT-D3 GeForce 7025
CPU: AMD Athlon II X3 450 3.2GHz AM3 Triple Core 1.5MB Cache

It doesn't seem to have any overclocking features aside from memory overclocking. I want to overclock my CPU and access the FSB and Multiplier settings but when I enter BIOS and go to the M.I.T, there are no options to do this. Any ideas? I believe I have the latest version of BIOS as well.

Thanks for all your help!

It's possible you may need to update your BIOS.

CTRL+F1 in the BIOS. Shows proper features on gigabyte mobo's

(A custom build is NON brand name / examples: HP,Compaq,Dell,Gateway,Emachines Are all Not Overclockable for the most part.)

Is this a custom build?

If answer yes: you should be able to over clock.
If answer no: you should not be able to over clock, or if you can it will be severely limited in most cases.

Overclocking is a main PRO to having your computer custom built rather than going to (insert computer store) and picking up a pre built generic box pc.

Yes, it is a custom build. CTRL F1 seemed to do the trick although when I increase the CPU frequency and keep the CPU Ratio at x16, I see no difference in CPU speed when I go to MY COMPUTER>PROPERTIES. It's still at 3.2 when it should be at 3.6 GHz, any ideas?

Also in the BIOS (even after I press CTRL+F1), I do not see ACC (Automatic Clock Calibration) or Unleashing

ACC is only available on certain boards with an AMD chipset. You don't have it unfortunately.

Thank you guys for all your support and help! It's unfortunate that I couldn't unlock the 4th core but overclocking will do

go to press ctrl+f1 in the main menu and u will get a submenu called advance chipset features something can remember and if u want to unlock the cores then goto advance BIOS options in that u will get core unlock just tweak around with it and try ur luck or install oem easy tuner 6 and under tuner there is submenu core booster just enable it the 4th core might just unlock. i recommend u to start saving up a bit for ur mobo (that what a have started ) u cant overclock ur cpu over 205 fsb
