Your CPU is multiplier locked. Even if your BIOS allows the option, it won't change it. Raising the FSB over the multiplier usually is what you want to do.

Make sure your board is capable of handling the increase in FSB. If your board has no PCI/AGP lock, then watch how much you increase.

It's actually better to lower your multiplier and really crank up the FSB...been proven time and again, that's all AMD has done with yur Sempron...Took a 266 bus part, dropped the multiplier reconfigured it for 333 bus operation and rebadged it as a new product.

Those are good temps. But [content edited], 5000 rpms, that's loud!
