I would save up some money and stalk the for sale section here on OCN for deals. That $90 TX650 usually goes for like $50. Hell, I sold mine for $40 to a friend.

and you need a new cooler too!
phenomII and athlonII NEEDS COLD! stay away from 50ºC! a safe range would be anything below 52ºC on a AMD CPU.
intel CPUs are like fermi cause theyre HOT.
so remember that.
and remember this too:
AMD CPUs like cold more than volts! i saw some guy OC his X4 955 to 3.8 with a really good cooler on it with stock volts!

and get a new PSU please. sparkle make crappy PSUs get atleast a ultra/corsair/BFG/coolermaster 650w PSU or something.

Like I said, I have absolutely no income and no money, and this comptuer was on an extremely limited budget. I couldn't possibly get anything better, and still can't.

Soo...anyone have a suggestion on how to get money?

There's a reason the title of the thread is named "I must suck at overclocking".
Maybe because he didn't read through enough of OCN, or payed attention to the wrong people.

Look here OP, Going over 1.55V is a death sentence for your CPU. Take it down or it will burn itself out.
If you want a higher overclock, buy a better heatsink and a bigger PSU. There's no way around it.
