Phenom 2 x4 830 overclocking

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am using a x4 970BE stock cooler on my x4 830 cpu, was wondering what do you think the best overclock I can get with this cooler is?

I have never overclocked a AMD cpu before, so I am gonna need some help with what settings you change. Any help here would be appreciated

Well, that cooler is going to give you a few mhz extra at best. I would imagine this is the stock cooler with copper pipes in it?

I don't know what kind of temps you will be getting, but I would guess the X4 830 will probably do 3.5-3.6ghz without much difficulty.

I noticed when I switched from a 95w all aluminum stock AMD cooler to the 125w heatpipe AMD cooler that the temps on my 830 dropped about 5c.

My temps seem really good. With the cpu at 3.15ghz at 1.280 volts running intel burn test on extreme it only gets up to 45c so it looks like i have room for improvement with my overclock but I need to understand the bios more before I go messing something up LOL
