AMD Phenom(tm) II N640 dual core 2.90 Ghz help with overclocking and safe temp system specs listed

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello, I am looking for help in overclocking my processer. I have a basic knowledge of computers and keep it up to speed with cleaning registry often, paging files, keeping unwanted processes down automatically etf. I also have advanced system care with paid pro, so that helps a lot too. Lately I have been gaming with tera, which is a cpu eater bigtime! I don't see my Ram get to even 80% even when I am running very large nexus battles. but my cpu hits 90% and stays there during basic play, just fighitng one npc which is essentially the full resting pace of tera. everything else runs at a decent rate, RAM, my video driver isn't the best but it handles tera fairly well, and in a few months I will upgrade my video card, and probably fan. Until now, I need to know how to overclock my processer, and what do you think would be a good temperature to stay around, for pretty much balance of when i'm playing tera and when the family is on facebook. Thanks in advance! Also giving me any knowledge on the subject would be appreciated!

all my specs are:
