I just purchased a new board and cpu .I am really green as far as o/c ic concerned .I tryied to o/c my fsb to 259 which work but when I check it with cpu-z the reading are the same.Any help would be appreciated.
Did you make sure to save the setting in your bios?
Yeah, typically you can just use the FSB to o/c, but there are other options like the multiplier and voltage. But use the FSB, it is the safest and you really cant damage your system if you use just that. I would advise against the voltage, because it will damage your processor over time.
