Hmm..

No offense but you don't sound like an advanced computer user to me.. Atleast not an advanced overclocker.

Basically, FSB X Multiple = MHZ

For example 150 X 10 = 1500MHZ

You overclock by raising the FSB, but when temperatures start getting higher you risk stability problems or damaging your processor. Read up on some overclocking articles and be sure you want to take the risk.

Might be a setting that lets you set it manually?

I cant find out if your board has a AGP/PCI lock, you'll have to find out in the manual. It is very important when overclocking that it has the lock.

If it doesn't, as you overclock the FSB it overclocks you G/C and PCI cards. This seriously limits your o/c ability.

Secondly Elitegroup make budget M/B's, this as well as the 848 chipset makes for poor overclocking.

Check if your board have locks, if it does, post back full etails of your system and i;ll give you some advice.
