    I need to change the multiplier in the voltage/frequency option in bios. But I can only change FSB, I dont know how to change multiplier. My board is MSI PT8 Neo LSR (Intel)Socket 478, (I really dont think it is necessary to mention all this). Reason I need to do this is that my Pc is heating up, I have to lower it.

    You do realize that will lower performance by lower either, or both, the FSB and the multiplier? Addressing why its overheating would be the better approach, you may need a new fan or a cleaning of the computer.

    I cleaned my computer recently, so I think it is the fan speed. Its a little above 2000. Is there anyway I can increase it in bios or manually on the motherboard or through some program.

    There may be some fan speed settings in the BIOS but you'll have to refer to the manual or just take a look.

    Actually, how hot is the processor?

    It normally stays around 45-46 in this time of year, but whenever I run even a simple program it shoots up all the way above 50, even sometimes upto 60 when I try to play any game (this is when the Air Conditioner is on).

    Well thats not that bad. Check the BIOS to see if there is any fan settings, but even if they are any settings, under load the fan should go to 100% automatically. An aftermarket cooler should be able to keep it under 60 all the time.
