I have a MSI 865GM2 - 5 (MS-6743G) board.

I tried doing all the research i could and am unable to find out how to overclock my CPU.

In all my previous BIOS's from other motherboards, ive had the possibility of adjusting the the FSB/hertz range in the "FREQUENCY/VOLTAGE" option in the BIOS, however in this one (Pheonix version 5.5) it only has these 4 options: (as in picture):

Auto Detect PCI Clock
Spread Spectrum
AGP/PCI Clock
AGP Power Voltage

Ive played with the Spread Spectrum option and it doesnt change anything.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to overclock on this motherboard?

Thanks.

You didn't say what CPU you're trying to overclock. :tazz:

Overclocking any CPU will cause it to draw more power and produce more heat, thus decreasing its life expectancy. Is this really what you want to do?
The little bit of extra performance you'll get surely isn't worth all the negatives.

Just a thought from an old tech,
Shadow ;)

The effect of overclocking depends on the cpu and the increase an extra 800Mhz for example will result in a big speed boost.

Im using a Notrhwood 3.0Ghz 800FSB, ive overclocked many times but cant seem to with this motherboard, thnx anyways, shadow!

Regarding Clockgen - It states on the website it only supports PE chipsets where as i have the i865G.

Any other over clocking software out there people know of?...
