Unable to Overclock on XFX 8200 mobo

So I recently replaced my old Athlon 64 with a Phenom II X3 720BE. As you can see from my crappy mobo, I cannot unlock the 4th core or even attempt to. Besides that point I noticed that the BIOS as a nice tab (JUSTwoot!!) for overclocking. I have read overclocking the 720 is not that difficult so I would like to push it to 3.2 GHz if at all possible. Here is the issue:

I cannot change the CPU Frequency in the bios. I have searched high and low and all I see is that I need to update my bios. But I search for that and registered on the xfx site and they do not have a bios update available. On top of that my computer isnt recognizing my processor ("AMD processor model unknown") but CPUZ recognizes it so I am not too worried. My question is how do I get the bios to let me change the CPU Freqeuncy. I do not want to use an auto overclocking setting. Thanks

how we can help with things like that, because of XFX Nvidia GeForce ® 8200 only support a Phenom is Phenom 1, Athlon 64 FX, Athlon 64 X2, Athlon 64 and does not support PHENOM II, it is a matter of CPU support list of vendors. and very minimal information from XFX site,

I suggest upgrading the motherboard support CPU, overclockable, and modern .. also i you had more budget get Am3+ , yeach this need upgrade RAm to DDR3 :)

I have the same mobo and am running PII 945 95watt cpu. With a bios update you will have full support. You up the FSB with the + and - buttons on keyboard.
