If your motherboard doesn't support it, except for OC utilities like SetFSB, I think you are out of luck.

not sure how the mobo wouldn't support it, I'm not very knowledgeable about this, but I would save your settings in the BIOS if you didn't do that. Just a thought.

That is not a very good board but if the options are not in the bios then you are out of luck. Voltage bump and better cooled or higher quality ram will improve your clocks but not by much. Trust me I have been there and spent plenty of my own money learning the hard way.

Yeah, if you dont have options in bios then I would say your out of luck.... You can pick up another board cheap that will help you. probably in the 70-80 dollar range. I have a Asus M4A77TD mobo and it was 85 I think, but i'm clocked up from stock 3.0ghz to 3.8ghz on air with my phenom ii x3 740 be.
