MSI Nf750-G55

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So i am new to the overclocking world, I use to just switch on the Easy oc on the mobo and get good results be happy with that but i recentley bought a liquid cooling system wich i just installed and i wanted to over clock my cpu more, I have a Amd Athlon II x2

At 3.0 ghz idle its temp is 37c flat at 3.6 its 38c at 4.0 (wich i did manually with the automatic voltage) its at 39c-40c...

If i get it any further than that the mobo will tell me the overclock failed wich i believe its due to the voltage, i read around i cant leave it at automatic. If anyone can tell me how i can figure the cpu speed and voltage to get stability i would highly appreciate it

And just as an extra i would also like to know what a good idle temp for my procesor is

sorry for all the newb questions I am new to this world but im really liking it

I always say the same speech.

Overclocking is:
60% Knowledge
15% Practice
15% Effort
10% Luck


You should start reading a lot, and by this I mean, try to google or look at the forum for the basics of overclocking, the general stuff, then move to some reads of logs/tutorials of overclocks on the same setup you have or similar ones (for example, same mobo with another CPU, or another mobo with the same chip as yours overclocking a Amd Athlon II x2)

Then you could make use of one of the most popular techniques: raise your voltages to the safe limit and apply the CPU core you which to achieve. After that start reducing every voltage you raised until you find the minimum necessary for stability.

Don't forget to fill up your system specs on your User CP, so we can easily assist you.


Hope I helped.
