Exclamation Overclocking problems with Asus A8V-XE MB

I have an Asus A8V-XE motherboard (Socket 939) with AMD athlon 64 1.8ghz venice 3000+. bios ver. 702. i set the multiplier to 9x the fsb to 400 but when i go on to my os every program i ran says that i still have 1.8ghz, 9x, 200fsb then i go into my bios it says i have 1.8ghz and 400 fsb and 9x multiplier. i tried changing my fsb and nothing. the multiplier works like it should. just the fsb all it does is show that its 400 in bios but has no affect at all. please help

WOW! that processor can't handle that much over clocking. The multiplier should be at 9x which is what it runs, and if the FSB is set at 400. You are trying to to push a standard 1.8 GHz to 3.6 GHz. That CPU can't only handle about 2.4 GHz, which figures the FSB to be set around 266. To be safe and get a longer life span with it, I wouldn't set it about 245, thats 2.2 GHz

it is possible you got a 'bum' cpu that won't overclock no matter what. sometimes it happens.

Did the other MB come preinstalled with a package deal from like dell, gateway, hp, compaq, acer, etc. If so it might have a factory bios lock and won't let you overclock it.

Just a thought!
