HeSafe to start overclocking?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hi guys
My sig rig is dead stock and I've been adding bits as I go,i know my motherboard is the worst part of the rig but I can't afford anything new.just wondering if you guys think I can start overclocking it and how much should I be pushing it, also going to clock the gpu also.
Thanks guys

Is this what you have GA-MA770T-UD3/US3?
If it is OC might be a problem with a quad core cpu.

Check here on this thread and look up your mobo http://www.overclock.net/amd-motherb...hase-list.html

It says it's not advised to OC. Check and make sure I've looked at the right board.

the board supports upto 125w cpu's
if your 955 is a c2 i wouldnt overcock it til you get a better board
if its a c3 you can overclock some

keep an eye on the voltage and temps
vdroop = idle core v - load core v
if it drops more than .1v then downclock it some
