i can't adjust the CPU voltage, for some reason It won't let me.

can someone help?

My motherboard is the MSI 760GME51

I need to adjust my voltage from 1.3750 to 1.4750 so that I can raise the multiplier to change my clock speeds to 4.2 Ghz

This will sound obvious: did you try setting it to manual instead of auto?

As shown in the picture above, it is greyed out so I am unable to modify it :(

Since you cannot change it to manual I'll assume it's locked. Did you search the internet for overclocks with the same board?

No, I haven't but it should be unlockable?

Some motherboards simply aren't made for overclocking and have some features locked. If that's the case then there not much you can do. I suggested searching for other overclocks using your motherboard because if other people did it then you should be able to. And if it is indeed locked probably someone will mention it somewhere

I have an MSI Z77A-G45 and I updated my BIOS today. Now I can't adjust my voltage because it's grayed out. Before updating, I was able to adjust the voltage to whatever I wanted. Oh, well.
