i have an acer aspire x3500 -U3600a motherboard with amd phenom x3 64 2.1ghz- i got the computer from a friend and put it a larger case for heating and expanding reasons... ive gone into bios and searched high an low for the lil multiplier thing. eventually i found it but it would only let me read it, no change allowed. the bios had locked this function..=( is there a way to get bios to let me overclock?? please someone help me with this cuz it is driving me insane

OEM Manufacturers limit the motherboard BIOS so they do not get warranty claims. If you want to O/C buy a decent motherboard.......

It doesn't appear you know how to overclock anyway. Unless you have a Black Edition CPU, the "multiplier thing" can't be raised, it can only be lowered. Why do you need to overclock? If you're into gaming & hope to improve performance, buy a new video card. The HD5450 is a general purpose / HTPC card, not a gaming card.

Just because the board isn't overclockable doesn't make it bad. If you're into gaming, the choke point in your system is the video card. No amount of CPU overclocking can transform a 64-bit home theather card with only 80 stream processors into a gaming card.
