The 3200+ are locked.
You have the option to increase the FSB.
1. Keep your full load temps below 55c.
2. Up the vdimm (RAM voltage)to 2.8 to 2.9 depending on BISO ability.
3. You will need about 1.8 or more volts for the vcore (CPU voltage)
4. If there is a chip set voltage you may need to up it a notch or 2 for stability.
5. Always test for stability.

3200 bartons are locked at the cpu, even it you change it in the bios it won't matter it will still be at its default, I have two of them in my folding farm, the best you can do with them is increase the fsb, I have one at 2.55ghz.
