ywith a 7750 you can pretty much shoot the multiplier to 15 and hit 3ghz easy. some folks after that have to bump the voltage up a tiny bit to get higher, some don't. just play with the multiplier to get used to it., and from there move the bus up a few mhz at a time. remember they work off 200x13.5 type of formula so when you bump the bus up more the changes are more drastic in speed

Thanks. I'll give that a try. What about the memory and video card? I chose those because of their OCability.

use the auto overclocking feature built into catalyst drivers. if that fails you can instead bump up the clock 5mhz at a time until unstable. record the last stable speed. then do the same seperately for the memory. after you've done that try combining the two, if its unstable (graphical glitches) then back down a bit. memory is another matter, do some reading on memory timing, look for reviews on your memory as many contain overclocking results. and keep in mind that if you speed up your bus you're also speeding up your ram!

I'm new too overclocking I have a desktop with a Athlon 7750 BE processor. heard it could be overclocked. Can anyone help me understand how to do so. I have some Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste from an sbox360 RROD repair and I heard it was a good thermal paste. haven't applied it yet but will before I start OCing. If a aftermarket cooler is needed could you suggest one in about a $20 price range I'm a poor unemployed college student. My system is in my profile I think now. Only filled in what I know. nothing has been overclocked yet. help please

If you read the posts on this page I explain how to hit 3ghz quite easily. You go to the overclocking section of you bios and bump up the multiplier. General consensus is that you shouldn't go past 3ghz with a stock cooler, even with arctic silver. After all polishing a terd is useless, putting it on does help, but the stock cooler is a bit flimsy in handling heat. I'd also use the search feature for these forums on overclocking AMD processors, it's easy to bump the multi, but it's important to understand what's going on.

Meh, I had a 7750 at 3.1GHz on a stock cooler w/ AS5. Temps were fine.

7750's generally don't have very good OC potential, and honestly it's barely even worth it.

Yeah, heat generally isn't an issue with this chip. You hit a wall, where no amount of voltage helps, long before you come anywhere near the seventysomething celsius max for the chip.

I got it running with a 14.5 multiplier been an hour and a half on prime95. running at 54C was hoping to get it to 3.0 at least but doesn't seem stable past here. Is this something that might be able to get to 3 once the AS5 paste burns in or is this the best I'm gonna get

Maybe, maybe not. Are your temps getting out of control once you get past 2.9GHz? Have you tried bumping up the FSB in 5MHz increments to see how far you can push it? Have you increased the voltage? How much?
