  1. Dammit malmental! Always beating me to the easy ones ha.

    I would assume your multiplier is under "CPU Ratio". You'll be looking for a dropdown or list of options that will probably be set to 16 currently if your CPU is at 3.2GHz. If you have options to put this number higher, it will times your FSB Frequency (that is currently at 200MHz) by whatever number you select.

    16 x 200 = 3200 = 3.2GHz clock.

    17 x 200 = 3400 = 3.4GHz clock etc.

    If you need further assistance, please post back.
  2. thanks guys for help

    now i run it at 3.7 ghz but i want 4ghz and that's tricky because i don't know what voltage do i need to run it @ 4ghz and the voltage is already set to auto and i can't change vcore volage but when i click on cpu voltage control it says +0.05v
    ..............etc and so is it the same or not ? or not related to vcore which i cannot change on these mobo
