Phenom II X4 965 Overclock - Am I Doing It Right? (Im a newb to OC'n)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So, this is my first time overclocking a cpu and I'd just like to make sure I'm not going to fry anything or create a bottleneck.

-I changed my multiplier from 17 to 18
-I changed clock speed from 200 to 220

HT is set to auto, and I didn't mess with any voltages..

Am I missing anything? (Or did I do anything incorrectly?) nerdsmiley.png

Thanks! & sorry if I'm completely borking this redface.gif

Refer to this as well - http://www.overclock.net/t/777378/official-gappos-little-deneb-thuban-overclocking-guide-with-too-many-smileys

Should give you a grasp of the basics.

There are a few things you're doing wrong here. HT link should always be kept close to stock and you should manually manage the voltages (since the BIOS pushes either too little or too much volts on auto). What mobo and cooler are you using?
