I have AMD Overdrive utility, but I want to do this in the bios correct?
That is correct IMHO you always want to use the bios to overclock.
As for how to do it you need to read the manual first and get used to where things are in the bios. Then you need to change the "DRAM Frequency" to 1333 (when CPU Bus Frequency is 200) next you need to go into the "DRAM Timing Configuration" sub menu of the Extreme Tweeker menu, and change the numbers to 6 next one down 6 next one down 6 next one down 18. push F10 and hopefully it will post. go back into bios and start running the CPU Bus Frequency up until you are unable to post.



And My photos for Club member status.




I will post up a pic of my rig once i get it nice and tidy

Thanks for the help eclipseaudio4 I appreciate it. Whats your opinion? Is the stock fan and heat sink sufficient enough if I am aiming for speeds around 4Ghz?

not even close! they are made to keep stock temps below max and that is it. They are completely inadequate for any real OC 2-300Mhz ok but not much more!

Thats ~35C so not bad but I am guessing that is idle. The temp that matters is Full load once it has stabilized. IIRC AMD's max temp spec for your chip is 62C so download LinX or Prime95 or any other stresstesting SW as well as Core Temp 0.99.8 open core temp and then go to options > adjust offsets and put in 10. That will give you a more accurate temperature. Now leave that open and run the strestest very closly watching coretemp, be ready to stop what ever test you are doing if you see it get to ~60C as I imagine you will. Just be careful and watch those temps.

Thanks for helping me out I really do appreciate it, I don't have much experience overclocking, I remember overclocking with dip switches on asus boards years ago thats the last time I was overclocking lol. I downloaded Core Temp 0.99.8 I had 0.99.7 and I noticed they fixed the temp display, it now displays the temp for all cores. After adjusting the offset value to 10 my temps now read 49C at idle I'm going to run those tests and see what happens but 49C at idle is just about pushing it wouldn't you say?
