Well, that motherboard is a 790i chipset which i'm not really that familiar with, but you can either go the FSB route which is to just up the "Front Side Bus" from stock 333 to whatever it will end up stable by 5 increments. Now your processor is a 2.83GHz which i'm guess it has 333 FSB with a 8.5x multiplier. I don't think you can change that multiplier since it's not an "EXTREME EDITION" going up but only down, so more than likely all you need to do is up the FSB and give it a higher vCORE. See i got a p35 board from Gigabyte and all i did was upped the FSB from stock "267" to "333" which is 333x9=2997 (3.0GHz). But now this is with the p35 chipset, i have no idea what the difference between your 790i is compared to my p35. Good Luck...
