give it a shot and see if it allows you to adjust your FSB...
if it does look for something in your bios that states PCI/AGP lock
or something that reads 33/66/100 lock
and make sure they are locked then your all set to start overclocking

My mobo can go to 300MHZ fsb but i cant even get 245MHZ so really i cant put my watercooling to the test (wishing to get 3.8GHZ) so what do i do?

But most importantly...
Get a better mobo. No offense. But ASRock mobo are not known to be good oc

So unless you're trying to set a clockspeed recond, you're better off running your RAM/CPU in a 1:1 configuration for optimal performance.
