The BIOS for this board does not allow you to change the front-side bus (FSB) nor voltage. However, you can change the FSB on the CPU by connecting pins with either foil tape or a conductive pen used to repair windshield defrosters. For the Pentium e2160 I boosted the FSB from 200MHz to 266MHZ, raising the speed from 1.8GHz to 2.4GHz. The standard voltage and heat sink work fine. To see a photo of the pins you need to connect search for "pentium e2160 bsel 266 mhz" in Google images or try this link:
Just remember to reset the motherboard using the reset jumper after you mod the CPU. On the first boot-up the BIOS will ask you if you want to use the 266MHz speed. Answer YES and continue.
I have not been able to get it to work at 333MHz FSB (3GHz clock speed), though this should be theoretically possible with this mother board.
