I believe there are program to accomplish overclocking as well. I'm not any help with the programs part of it as I have it easy (bios overclocking) but its something that should be looked into.
To the original poster, it would help if you posted what Athlon II X2 you have. For example there are Athlon II X2 240's, 245's, and so on. (I have the 240)
