Never heard of anyone OC'ing a Cryix, but I guess it's possible. Depending on your mobo, you will have to up the Front Side Bus (FSB) to get more out of it. Check your manual to see if you can adjust the FSB by way of jumper on the mobo itself or if you need to go into the BIOS to do it. Find that out and post it back here.

No. CPU core voltage and Front Side Bus are two different things. Only adjust the FSB for now.

If you have thoroughly searched all of the BIOS and there is no adjustment for it and there are no jumper setting to change it, then you cannot. You will need a new mobo to do any overclocking.
