Hello, I have been trying to find an overclock utility for my amd athlon 64x 2 4400+ 2.3, because there is no clocking options in the bios, any help would be greatly appreciated.

motherboard Id F690GVM
amd athlon 64x 2 4400+ 2.3GHz
ati 4670 hd 1gig ddr3
ddr2 ocz reaper 800 Mhz dual channel 8 gig 4x2gig
win vista 64 bit
Bios Phoenix - AwardBIOS v6.00PG, SM Bios Ver 2.4
system BIOS ID R02-B2

Overclock use software very dangerous since you had mobo from manufacture, I do not recomend you do it. for better ran at default, if you want overclock get new mb support overclock minimum AM3. If you want see spec detail use CPU-Z

If i could get a new Mb I would, I would rather have a quad core myself, Or that nice new 8 core possessor the have out LOL, but anyway i have been looking around and a lot of people have overclocked the same amd 4400+ 2.3 MHz with AM2 socket, depending on the cooling sys they use, was getting from 2.6 to 3.2 speeds out of theirs. So I do not know why I cant do mine, I know it is just factory Mb but I should still be able to overclock with some utility, and I do have CPU-Z and use it. I do appreciate the response though, I do take your advisement seriously,I just have done a few overclocking on many factory mb's just have to know there limitations. I was just hoping someone knew where some good overclock utility's where. Oh I have been corresponding with Ace and the say "I would not advise overclocking on any cpu but yes it could be overclock.

all right, athlon X2 4400 can be overclocked am2 but depend on motherboard not just cooler, is mobo support it or no ??, I know like Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 motherboard (socket AM2)/ or from asus board, and not from dell/HP /acer.
certainly no longer worth the upgrade AM2 mobo on
today, nah .. hopefully there is someone who can
help it, to fit with your expectations .. Good luck

Thank you for the info. I was talking with another acer m1100 ownr and he flashed his bios to a newer ver but I now from exp that it could be fatal to the computer if not done right.
