anyways,

i also bought a hummer case, power supply GX series 650w, and ram cosair vegeance 1600mhz. 16gb. I havent get the the APU fan yet. Please tell me what FAN should i get so i can overclock like you.

I dont know anything about APU overclocking or anything overclocking really. I read about CPU core speed which can be increase by either increase Reference Freq o CPU multiplier, NorthBridge can also be calculated by Ref Freq multiply by NB multiplier, HyperTransport also equal to Ref Freq multiply by HyperTrans Multiplier, and Memory can increase to 1600 MHz according to my Cosair.

Please tell me how you set these number. And what software are you using? i am a total noob here. Please help. Thank you very much.

and i am thinking of getting Corsair H60 Liquid CPU Cooler

do you think this will work?

OK - let me try to make this easy:

1. Liquid cooling is not required. Get a decent HSF like Coolermaster Hyper 212 or N520 (saw it on sale at Frys for $30)
2. Upgrade bios to 1.3 from HERE
3. Apply Bios update in pure dos mode using the included tool
4. Overclocking:

Adjust Internal Core Clock: <increase this to overclock> - Max 160
Dram Freq: Set this to a value so that the adjusted DRAM Freq is close to 1600
VCore: 1.39
VDimm: 1.55 (DRAM Voltage)
Lab Burst Mode: Enabled

Install OS with default settings, before attempting any overclocking. Also I noticed on my board, the initial boot after a high Core Clock took a while, but subsequent reboots were fine. Board recovers well from bad overclock so no worries.

Good luck!

Yes, I had to use live update to download the 1.3 BIOS and update that way. Try 143 x 26 speed for now

I generally avoid bios updates from Windows. Should be OK to do as long as you are not overclocked. That is why I said to apply the update in pure dos mode. The link I provided will only work in pure dos mode.

Yes, I agree, 143 would be a good place to start and increase the freq in small increments.

Those results make me want to beat on my poor Llano rig thats supposed to stay stock haha! Nothing like a little tweaking to end the night.

Wow, Llano is such a winning product for AMD. They should release a BE with unlocked multi.
