Help with overclocking AMD Athlon II X4 630 2.80 GHz

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello!

I would like to overclock my CPU to get some better performance while gaming, i have some nasty low FPS while playing especially MMORPGS, which i believe my graphics card should be able to handle.
So I want my CPU to run a little harder if possible.
I have overclocked a CPU once before on an older computer, but that didn't end very well, thats why I'm asking for help here this time! tongue.gif

I understand computers in general pretty well, but having some help with exactly this, would be great!

Specs:
Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate x64
RAM: 8GB (2x4GB)
Graphics card: Radeon HD 6870 1GB
Processor: AMD Athlon II X4 630 2,80 GHz
Motherboard: MICRO-STAR - MS7597
Cooling: Just basic cooling, but according to SpeedFan, my core temp is 44C while writing this tongue.gif (Fans are currently at lowest, can pump 'em up a bit if needed)

So if anyone have some tips, or have done this and know it can be done, that would be great!
I do have some computer knowledge, so It's not like teaching grandma!

Thanks in advance! biggrin.gif
