Overclocking help on amd system

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Not sure if this is the right place to put this but I didn't see anywhere else to.

I have AMD Phenom X4 9550 on XFX MDA72P7509 MB and I would like to know how to overclock it properly. Just to about 2.5ghz or so without it making my games go slower. It's not an unlocked processor.
