AMD Phenom X3-8750, 2.4GHz L3 Cache 3MB Possible to overclock?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello


I am new at overclocking, so i am wondering if there is possible to overclock my AMD Phenom X3-8750, 2.4GHz L3 Cache 3MB and to how much stable?

My motherboard is a ASUS M4A785G-HTPC/RC, and i have a Thermaltake 520 Watt powersupply.

Is it any easy way to overclock it? smile.gif

Since it's not an unlocked processor you will have to overclock using the front side bus

When you change this number (200 at stock) it will also change your memory, hypertransport and cpu northbridge frequencies, so you will have to lower those multipliers to compensate...

Start by disabling all the power saving features such as c1e, cool n quiet, ect.
Manually set in the stock voltages for your processor
Move in small increments of frequency while keeping your ram, north bridge, and hyper transport multipliers lowered so they aren't being overclocked.
Boot windows, and run a quick benchmark such as hyper pi to ensure partial stability, go back bump the increment of fsb again, repeat this until it becomes unstable at stock voltages...

Increase the voltage by the smallest increment possible and continue the above.

P.S. watch your temps during the stress testing, DO NOT GO ABOVE 70c which is the max operations temperature for your processor on cores.

You can use HWmonitor to monitor your temps.

Good luck!

What Cannon said, and don't expect much of an overclock... The first gen Phenoms had like a max 300Mhz oc with 1.5vCore...
