You can always try this to overclock in future AMD OverDrive.

Ach does not work with our mobo.

Are you running the AMD "Quiet 'n' Cool" function in your bios? Likely you are, just switch it off.

I dont know if my CPU is cool but quiet surely it isnt.
I have a standard cooler that came with it and its driving me crazy.

My MSI board and AMD Quad doesn't default to "Quiet 'n' Cool" unless selected in the Bios. For me it was a way to OC my board beyond 10% but still have it throttle back it's own accelerator to save energy and loose heat then throttle up on demand. Not likely a setting you want for gaming but it worked for a while. Now I'm just back to 100% stock settings as the differences only made for unexpected shut down issues !
