Hai Kliton x64, i actually am not familiar wit AMD ( i used to OC Intel ). But since I see the bios menu from your picts, it looks almost identic to intel mobo i ever had. So here i try to give you some clues - not the best ones - on how you can start from.

1st. Make sure how good your cpu cooler. ( at least never use stock cooler when ocing ).

2nd. Make sure what is actual default voltage of your default clock 3 ghz by stressing it with PRIME95 or IBT.
To see your voltage during stressing, open CPUZ or HWmonitor ( last version better ).

3rd. Once you get default vcore / voltage core from cpuz, then go to bios and set System Voltage Control to manual. Start lowering vcore one increment / a notch, save the bios.

4th. Let's see if the cpu can boot to windows.

5th. If it does, then lowering vcore until you find it unstable ( crash / can't boot ). From here you'll know the stable vcore for your default clock.

It's more "trial error", so carry on some experiments.

Remember keeping your eyes on cpu temp while stressing ( use Coretemp or Realtemp or HW Monitor ).

Hoping this helps you a bit.

^ ok, let's begin with this:

1. Run IBT or Prime95 for 2 minutes, open HWMonitor to see vcore during stressing and core temp to see temp. Once it's completed, you can see what's your max. vcore and temp.

2. I need more BIOS picts to see how the menu looks like.
- Press enter CPU Clock Ratio ( then see what i looks like - as i see from your bios your basic clock is 200 Mhz and your default clock 3000Mhz, it might be that the CPU Clock Ratio is 30X - just my guess ).

- Press enter System Voltage Control ( there' should be at least 2 options - Auto or Manual ).

Ok, just to steps of BIOS menu I'd like to know how they tell us before we go any further.

The temp is normal 1.42 V,this picture is to overclock,this is complete picture.

All your BIOS setting is in AUTO mode, so too see more menu of your bios, you have to change AUTO sertting to MANUAL.

'Overclock'?
I was running a stress test with Prime95 when I saw my CPU frequency jump to 3.6Ghz! I've never overclocked before nor run a stress test and naturally was suprised to see this happen. Was this just some glitch to do with CPU-Z or did my CPU actually speed up?
