MSI Reminds You...
• According to the Intel North Bridge 945GZ chipset spec, this board supports CPU of FSB 800MHz at maximum by default . However, you may let your board running at FSB 1066MHz (Core 2 Duo CPUs) by overclocking and adjusting the CPU FSB frequency in the BIOS:
Enter BIOS setup menu and go to [Frequency/Voltage Control] --> [Adjust CPU FSB Frequency]. There you can adjust the value to [266] for the Core 2 Duo E63XX/E64XX/ E66XX/E6700 CPUs.
Please be noted that this is over-spec, and this overclocking behavior is not recommended and guaranteed.
