AMD Athlon X2 7850 Black Edition (unlocked)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just got the cpu. It has 2.8Ghz I've been messing around with overclocking. I'm still unsure of what attributes I need to be changing. So far it says... I have overclocked it in my system control panel to 3.02ghz. I think all I did was change the multiplyer of the cpu. I didn't change anything else. It still feels like I'm not getting the 3.0ghz that it says though. Am I doing something wrong?

You really think you're going to feel a 200mhz OC per core on a CPU as low power as that?

I only gain a couple FPS from stock 3.4GHz to 4GHz on my Phenom x4

So far you have less than a 10% overclock. Also, you don't seem to have run any benchmarks, you're just going by "feel".

Most of the time you are not CPU limited if you are just using your computer like normal, so unless you are gaming, or encoding or something like that, you likely won't notice a difference.

have you checked to make sure your oc is stable?

I don't think you're really doing anything wrong. You probably won't notice that much of a gain in you're performance.
