Hello from Heidelberg, Germany :),

i bought a mainboard (Biostar A880GZ) with UEFI. I installed a Athlon II 620.
now i wanted to raise the frontside bus' mhz for overclocking like i was able to do with every board since Pentium I.
But there is no option for it :eek:.

I tried varius softwaretools like AMD Overdrive - not possible to alter anything.

I emailed Biostar twice but they don't answer.

Thanks in advance for clues and advice.

But reading the manual, (Pages 30-33 of the English BIOS manual I downloaded from the link you posted) it looks like the OC options are buried in the Performance tab. Voltage/overvoltage controls on the main screen of the Performance tab, and Multiplier/clock + additional voltage controls on the PState subpanel.

There's no such thing as a front side bus anymore, really, since the memory controllers are integrated into the CPU. Just adjust the multiplier. (Core FID.)

If your CPU isn't unlocked, some of those options may be disabled.

I didn't see anything resembling a BCLK adjustment, but you don't usually want to do that anyway if you don't have to.

You are going to have to adjust the FSB, the BCLK and CoreFID is for Intel parts.

Ar there any options in the BIOS?

Thanks for the replys and for digging in the manual. In the performance tab i found the options dave mentioned (voltage etc) but nothing fsb equivalent for the CPU (BCLK). I used that option for the same CPU overclocked on a AM3 (not am3+) Board. The Bios (what is it now called - uefi?) is the actual version. Could it be they deactived them for older AM3 CPUs?
Maybe there is a hidden menue? Could someone who owns that board confirm that it is just not implemented?
