    What voltage are you using?

    You'd probably do better using a lower multi and a higer fsb.

    If there's no option in the BIOS, you might have to update it with a newer version from MSI's website.

    1.2xx? i think you may need to bump up the voltage to go faster.
    Not sure about MSI, but asus board needs to disable the ratio support, to enable changing multiplier. again not sure about about MSI, but been told that 945 is not quite a great o/c board.
    good luck.

    i think these days updating bios is a lot easier (with the windows base utility programs such as asus updater) but not sure if it is not as risky as before.
    not sure MSI equivalent of the the asus program.

    They are very risky.

    I should know, this is my 5th asrock 4core dual to go :/ .

    Stick to floppy disc, or usb flash drives imo, even then its not exactly 'safe'.
