Red face Overclocking Phenom 9150e

These are my specs:
AMD Phenom x4 9150e 1.8Ghz
JetWay JXBLUE-78GA3D-LF Motherboard
4GB DDR2
ATI HD 5750
430watt supply

I am trying to overclock my processor, but for some reason when I set the multiplier higher in the bios and reboot, the speed stays the same. When I decrease the multiplier for example to 1.7Ghz and reboot, it works. If this problem gets fixed, to what value of ghz can I overclock my processor to? I heard some people say 2.6 on other forums, but I am using stock cooling. Therefore, the temperature idles at 25c right now.

Waiting for your responses

You probably have power saving enabled. Try your overclock, then run Prime95, and you'll notice whi;e Prime95 is running, your speed will go up.

I will try that. But, where do you think I should set it at? Will 2.4 be good?

Try 2.4. Check your temperatures while running Prime95, if they exceed 60c, get a better cooler or lower the OC.

I tried 2.2, rebooted, ran prime95 and the clock was at 1.8ghz still.
