Question about Foxconn NF4UK8AA-8EKRS Motherboard
This may be harder than you think. Odds are your processor has a locked clock multiplier. Since this is most likely the case you're going to need to find a way to unlock it. Unlocking some processors are easier to do than others, but it's not going to be simple pretty much across the board. FYI, years ago most processors weren't locked in any way, this was before the big tech boom and the huge expansion of the computer building market. The big 2 started locking multipliers when anyone with an internet connection thought they could build and overclock computers and would raise the multiplier up way to high and burn up their cpu. These same people would then demand a replacement. The overclocking scene is why we have locks on them now. As a general rule of thumb mobile processors usually come with an unlocked multiplier, but that is not always the case either. Ok, all this being said... IF you have a processor with an unlocked multiplier AND you are using an AMD based processor you can download a program called central brain identifier. Under the mobility section there is an option to change the multiplier on the fly right inside of windows. Now having said all this, I would recommend not raising the clock multiplier, you're better off raising the front side bus and tweaking settings like ram latency. If your system is having issues running at a higher FSB try tuning your cpu and ram voltage. Go in the smallest increments your motherboard will allow, do your cpu first. Raise the voltage by 1 notch and then try going to a higher FSB than you can safely use, if you still experience issues try going up another notch. Please Please Please use your head. Overclocking is not always safe, and your system WILL fail if you push it too far past it's limit. You must keep in mind that your processor was built to run at a specific multiplier, running at a higher one may simply not work at all, or lead to system instability or worse. Don't buy into the hype either that "______ processor is the same as the higher model ______ processor, they just set the multiplier different". While this is technically true the way it works is all the chips are built and then tested at various speeds, the ones that pass all the tests are shipped as the highest end units, the ones that cannot run at the highest multiplier but can run without trouble at a lower one get set to be sold as the lower model. So as you could imagine this can lead to trouble when you're dealing with people changing the clock multiplier to a different one.
