I have read that you can use the MSI DOT program to overclock by 11%. There may be a limit on the core voltage to around 1.7 volts which only gets you a 9.1 % increase. I've also read where the FSB was raised from 200 to 240 and still be stable but you do this at your own risk.

Bios is colour coded to tell you how far you can go safely with that board.
