I don't seem to have AI as part of my bios. What are my options for overclocking?

No idea. You haven't stated what hardware you're running.

I was referencing Guide v1.6.1 on your site which appears to be a solid match to my hardware. To be more exact: Intel Quad 2.4ghz Q6600, Asus P5KPL-CM, AMI Bios (v0602, 2/24/09),Two 2gb DDR II 800 Kingston Memory (4gb) and a 512mb Radeon PCIe video card.

I'm a newbie with respect to overclocking. In looking at the screen shots found in Guide v1.6.1 and shots from other articles on the site, it appears my bios is lacking the adjustments necessary to even begin overclocking. Hopefully, I am wrong about this or, at least, there exists a workaround.

Thank you.

They might be in a different menu to the one in the guide. I have an AMI BIOS and my overclocking options are under the Cell Menu (what kind of name is that?). Guides are for reference only, unless you have the same board. But as I can't see your BIOS I can't possibly know where the options are hidden. They may even require a special key combination to unlock, but that's only something I've seen with Gigabyte boards.

So what are my next steps? Contact Asus? AMI? Other?

Enter the bios.

Select the Advanced menu at the top.

Enter Jumperfree Configuration

Change AI Overclocking to Manual

Have fun

First try FSB 667 its almost a given 3.0 without other tweaks.

Remember to keep an eye on your memory speeds. Overclocking can increase the memory speed, you may need to use memory multipliers to drop memory speed back into spec as you go farther.

Thank you for the reply NM. I'll give it a shot when I get home and let you know how it goes.

And howcome you didn't find the info needed?

I took a look at your manual and pages 18-19 talks about AI Overclocking,etc.

At any rate, that motherboard has limited OCing options, lol.

jason, Shadow was being polite. "RTFM" in bold type would have been meant as offensive.

The expression "RTFM" is not recent. It dates back more than 40 years to the early days of Unix.

When some strange internet term is unknown, check Urban Dictionary. If it's nowhere else, it will be there.
