Default Overclock AMD black edition

I just recently built my computer with an amd 5000 black edition. I did some reading around and found that lots of people are able to overclock it to 3ghz without messing with the vcore or needing extra cooling. The clock multiplier is unlocked with the black edition, so I just figured as soon as I got my system up and running, I could just go in to the BIOS and increase the multiplier.

I have a MSI k9mm-v motherboard with latest bios installed. there is no setting in the bios to modify the clock multiplier. so, my question is, does that mean I am out of luck for overclocking my cpu? I bought a nice thermaltake tr2-r1 cpu cooler for it and it's running really cool at stock.

Thanks.
