Need HELP Oc'ing AMD FX-6100 !!!

Hi guys ! Im here after a long time. Few weeks ago i bought my new cooler corsair h55 quiet edition to have evrything run cool and silently. However i tried to do some overclocking with no luck... My mobo is the Asrock mb 970 extreme3 AM3+ socket. When i push it with fsb @208 and multiplier @ x21,5 with vcore voltage @1.45v it runs smooth till the crappy CPUTIN hits 63*C. Then the volts drop to 0.88v and cpu hzs to 1.6ghz... I know that this is caused from thermal throttle but how can i COMPLETELY disable it ? In bios the option OFF exists but seem not to work... What can i do to make it run smoothly in a stable voltage ? THANKS IN ADVANCE !!!

    Firstly, it's not your CPU that's thermally throttling--it's your motherboard's power phases. The 970 Extreme3 has an extremely lacking power phase and won't be able to push your CPU very far past stock.

    Secondly, don't touch the FSB--leave it at 200 and bump up the multiplier up to x21 (that's the maximum I'd go with your motherboard).

    Thirdly, you don't want to disable power phase throttling--it keeps your motherboard from becoming a fireplace.

    Completely understood... this now makes sense that on stock speeds the cputin never goes over 50*C and the core temps are just 27*C - 30*C. If u can tell me what would be the ideal voltage for this mobo so I won't fry it's VRM system in order to hit the 4.2ghz with multiplier x21 and fsb @200 ? You know the mobo doesn't even have option to set LLC to extreme state (over 120%)...
