I have an ASUS motherboard and on the main screen I can't enable D.O.C.P. ,so I can't overclock my CPU in BIOS, and AMD Overdrive doesn't save the settings. CPU Athlon X4 870k, mo-bo ASUS A68-HM-Plus.

Most of the A68 boards have weak VRMs, and limited any "overclocking" (which was pretty much bump the multiplier, nothing particularly granular) to 60W TDP CPUs. The 870K is a 95W chip out of the box - even if you could overclock, it's not going to be a great experience.

Thank you for answer. Well than, I'll have to wait for grand comp upgrade.

I don't if it is possible, and don't mean to suggest it is, but if it is you might find a utility called AMD Overdrive on the AMD website (downloads) would be the way to do it.
