Specs:

Processor: AMD Athlon II X2 245 - currently stock 2.9ghz.
MotherBoard: AsRock K10N78M Pro - DDR2 AM2+/AM3 Supported. Motherboard Specs Click here.
Ram: 2GBx1 PC6400 (800)
Graphics Card: N/A - I'm using Integrated Graphics Nvidia 8200
PSU: 500w

Well, My Bios has EZ Overclock settings. I.e. You will load Optimized Overclock Settings. 3.0Ghz up to 4.8Ghz.

What were the settings when i set it to 3.3Ghz:

Multiplier - 14.5
Vcore - 1.3500v
FSB - 230
HT Link - 2300
NV voltage around 1.25v-1.50v
Ram Timing: it was 5-5-5-x-x-x
Ram Freq: 306Mhz or 308Mhz
FSB and Ram ratio: 3:4

I tried to lower HT Link down to 2070 (X9).

Here's my Big Problem. The CPU is more responsive after overclocking but i had Lower FPS ingame. I lost about 5-8 FPS.

I'm Playing GTA 4 and it's all set to low with 640x480 Resolution and my Average FPs before overclocking it was 20-24FPS and after overclocking it drops under 20FPs.

I want to overclock it manually.

What setting should i change?

I will wait for answers.

First disable EZ OC then manualy set the V-core to 1.35 the FSB to 230, HT to 2000 in the bios
