I'm not very familiar with overclocking AMD processors, but I think it's pretty similar to Intel.

What you need to do is adjust your processor's clock frequency. Then, the clock frequency number multiplied by the cpu multiplier, will give you the cpu's frequency. This may also overclock your memory to. Your memory is all running at 667mhz (even the 800mhz sticks).

Be aware though, this will make your processor run hotter. Take small steps, and watch your temperatures. This is one of my favorite programs for checking processor temperatures: http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/ . Take small steps at a time to. The first overclock, you could probably do about 250-300mhz. After testing to see if it's stable, bump it up another 100mhz. Don't forget to check your temperatures.

EDIT: If you do go overboard though, and your system will not post, reset your cmos by setting the jumpers, or you can remove the computer's battery for a few minutes (unplug the computer first of course)

right now i have cpu frequency 240(like in pic).and if i try to give it a little bit more,it says to change the frequency.Cpu clock ratio is the multiplier right? i cant change it bigger than 5x.I m doing something wrong i guess.

I looked through your manual, and it didn't help too much http://america.giga-byte.com/FileList/Manu...5plus_s3g_e.pdf .

Maybe this is for a different revision. I noticed yours doesn't have timing mode.

Have you already begun doing some overclocking yourself, to get it to this point?

yes i have started overclocking,got it to 248,6x.I have also tryed to put ram to speed 533,but no use.
i used program called cpu speed 2.5 to test speed.If cpu is clocked it shows 1490MHz,and if not clocked then 2200Mhz.how should i understand that.
Also 3dmark 05 cpu test,clocked ~3300,without 4500.
