I have a Intel D865PERC as my mobo. My cpu is a Intel 3.2. I want to overclock it to about a 3.4. Im very new with overclocking and i was wondering why, when i go to my bios, it wont let me change any of my settings. Do i have to update my bios or is my computer "not clockable." I also have a geforce fx 5600 and I cant get it to overclock either!!! Are there any programs that will let you overclock a fx5600?
Thanks,
Mr. Smiley

if ur computer is from a company like dell or hp, then they disabled the overclocking option. but im assuming u have a custom computer so maybe Intel disabled those options in the BIOS. as for your FX 5600, u can use the controls in the latest nvidia drivers or u can use any of the following programs:

aTuner
PowerStrip
RivaTuner

I have tried the rivatuner and everything is locked. I didnt make this computer, actually i bought it from a new line of pcs called powerspec. Maybe they locked it or something. Well ill probably get a 6800ultra soon anyway so i guess it doesnt matter. As for my mobo should i update my bios? What benefits would that give me?

BIOS updates offer better performance, new cpu support, or maybe some fixes. since u got ur pc from powerspec u should visit their site for BIOS updates but Intel's BIOS updates could also work. unless ur ok with voiding ur warranty and taking the risk of messing up ur comp, then i suggest u dont update ur BIOS, but if u need help or sumtihng goes wrong then u can always use this forum.
