Changing my AMD Multiplier? how do I do that?

I am currently using this motherboard with my AMD X2 6000+

GIGABYTE GA-M57SLI-S4 AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard .

I am extremely happy with everything so far, and have the FSB at 208, so my CPU is running a 3120 Mhz. I would actually like to overlock my CPU to 3200Mhz, but I'm not sure I want to keep pushing the FSB up, I would have to push it to 213 or 214. Not sure I want to put that much stress on everything.

Is there a way to change my multiplier from 15 to 16?

    AMD FX allows multiplier upward mobility.
  2. Sounds like you are saying I can't then. If that is the case, how high have you guys pushed your FSB. This is my memory, and everything is running very stable at 208. Wondering how much higher I can go, I know I can play around with it too, just being a little lazy.

  3. fsb at that level isn't really a problem as far as your CPU/mobo is concerned (they can probably do 300) & you can always drop the RAM divider if you need to.
