Hi everyone I have been reading the forum now for a few weeks, and have now plucked up the courage to overclock my cpu and ram.

here are a few details.
cpu Phenom 9550 2.2 (oc 2.527)
Ram 4Gb (2x2GB) DDR2 667MHz
PSU Gigabyte GE-R460-V1 460w
Mobo Foxconn a6vmx (most upto date bios)
geforce 8600fx 256mb

I have not found much info on the internet regarding my bios and how to overclock with it. the frequency was on 200 that i have changed to 230 that has gave me a nice 400mhz boost, but when i go higher the system crashes or if i increase the voltage i loose my video signal.

i have also tried to change my memory setting if i do i lose video no matter how much of a change i make..

When i loose video i have to move the cmos reset jumper.

oh i am using the stock cooling at the mo but have renewed the thermal pasted with high performance cool master. this reduced my cpu temp on idle from 56c to 40c. I read that the cpu max temp is 70c.

many thanks for reading and hope to hear from you all soon.
