Overclock phenom ii x4 830

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Need help overclocking non-Black Edition amd phenom ii x4 830. I raised FSB only 5 MHz, and Windows failed to launch. MSI BIOS. Also, is there any way to unlock the Core Multiplier? CPU came 2.8 GHz stock, now running stable at just under 2.9. I am trying to reach 3.5. Any help will be much appreciated.
Thanks.

Solved

Must have been interference with another BIOS feature. Currently running stable at 3.1 GHz. Idles at 28 C.

Im trying the same. You can't unlock the multiplier. when i try to raise my fsb by 55 mhz then it becomes unstable at 3.36 ghz. i Just need to know what the safest voltage for it is for reaching 3.8-4.0

That is not the board I would recommend doing this on...

 

See the link: "About VRMs & MOSFETs" in my sig and be sure to read concerning the high VRM failure rates across nearly all low end MSI AMD motherboards when run with overclocked quad or hexa cores.

could vrm heatsinks help prevent failure when overclocking on this board?

also, ive noticed you mentioned overclocking cpus with a TDP of 125w, does it make a difference if my cpu has a TDP of 95w?
