Ok I have looked a bit through the sticks. But have been unable to find the answer to my question so I will reword it in hopes that I may find the answer.

I have gone into my bios. I have gone to the section that has the options to up the FSB for my cpu, but for some reason the options is set to auto with no other choices. How do I do I change it from this state?

I know I want to bump of the fsb in increments of 5 each time.

read the manual on your Mobo, if you don't have a hard copy asus should have a more in depth version of it online (pdf format)

I have an asus rampage formula too, you should turn CPU Overclocking or something similar to manual, then you will get voltage / FSB control. You can change the FSB by typing in the numbers manually or using the + / - buttons.
