hi guys ive got the AMD Athlon II X3 435 and ive unlocked it to phenom II x4 b35 which is running 4 x 2.9 GHz. my motherboard is a microstar ms-7599 and ive recently OCed my graphics card a bit so i noticed i should try OC my processor too. i mean, i'm a total newbie when it comes to this so id be very grateful if you could just give me some general tips about OCing the cpu, this one especially if you know how. is it safe? is it less demanding than gpu OCing? is it noticeable? does it shorten the CPU lifetime by much? how will it impact my overall performance? does it need additional cooling? im running 4gbs of ddr3 ram and a radeon HD 7750 (which i OCed a bit) and a 550w psu. soo all in all im just looking for a tutor (lol), cause i really dont know what it takes, the software, the process, the precautions, please help!
