BEST WAY TO OVERCLOCK A , I have a ASUS M4A88T- MB and AMD phenom 2 X4 3.11 GHz b50 Processor
What is the best way to over clock this MB and processor to you? I have not gotten around to doing this yet feel free to let me know what values I needed to change in the BIOS for best results
Thanks in advice! Adam

Just overclock the core frequency, leave the multiplier (@ x16 or yours maybe x15.5) alone as its not unlocked. you will have to compensate your ram speed and timing.
Start ram off at 1066mhz, if all is good @1066 jump to 1333mhz and stress test again.
HT and NB speeds, keep them both around 2000mhz.
When overclocking the core frequency don't go above 1.45 volts you should get 3.6 - 3.7ghz ...maybe 3.8ghz...watch your temps
Get a good CPU cooler, I have an Enermax EST T40 push/pull and seems to do a great job making my Athlon2 x3 run as a Ph2 x4 (propus) @3.7ghz on an M4A89TD pro
