    I've read the entire SetFSB thread, cracked a version of SetFSB (not ashamed to say it, it's been an abandonware for at least 7 years, for anyone interested there are online code generators for the software to work to bypass the obnoxious hardware ID check), but I seem to have one of those un-setFSB-able mobos. With unlocked A09, 940XM, Win10 and so on, I am unable to increase the clocks, and I was unable to exceed my CPU above 29/28/27/26 or 27/27/27/27 with multiple TDP/TDC configs. I believe I've checked all the mobo options in SetFSB version 2.3.178.134 and have abandoned almost all hope, but wanted to ask the final question - is there a way to set it any higher, with another software, or with a certain config? Can I exceed 133MHz?

    You do understand that there is no front side bus on the M15x, right? Starting with nehalam and onwards, fsb was deleted and replaced with qpi (quick path interface). Which you cannot overclock, only raise multipliers on the xm class CPU. Only M17x R2 has some weird implementTion that allowed to raise cpu by 5% tops (similar to BCLK overclock).

    Ok. This I didn't realize. Thanks for clearing that issue. The next one is, is it possible to increase base multipliers? Both Throttlestop and Intel XTU have very trimmed options
