Thread Starter 
I have just bought an AMD 3700 san diego and i was thinking of overclocking it.
Does anyone know how far i could stabily overclock it with the stock cooler and arctic silver heat compound??
Also would it be better to overclock in bios or usisng software???

safe lister,
Dont even think about using software its not as reliable as using bios. Start overclokcing at 5mhz intervals through bios in that section i showed you when we wer building, The AS5 is good but id also reccommend getting at better HSF, go on u know u want a BIg Typhoon. Well download speedfan from here
http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php
Make sure you keep an eye on those temps when ur ocing
Keep on going as far as you can go i reckon you could get around 2.8ghz
Hope i helped Cotty D
PS i still wanna know ur super pi score you cna get it in the download section on this site

How far you can overclock while keeping it stable depends on your current temperatures (idle and load, more importantly load) and the stepping of the processor (imprinted on the IHS).

It is always better to overclock in the BIOS. Software overclocking should only be done with prebuilt computers (Dell, HP, Compaq, etc...) that have the settings in the BIOS locked.
