Help overclocking AMD Phenom X4 9950 BE

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, i have been trying to sort this problem out for a while but i can't...

I have an AMD Phenom X4 9950 Black Edition and i am trying to overclock it.

My mobo is an ASUSTeK M3N78 PRO.

AMD Overdrive says that it cannot detect and AMD 7 series chipset so it won't open.
NTUNE says "FSB bus modification: Failed. Restored to original setting" every time i click apply.

If anyone knows how i could overclock my cpu without changing the BIOS then please help!

Thanks.

The only reason i am trying to overclock is to increase performance in software.

E.g. if i overclock the software, in a game i play things are increased and it would give me an advantage over other pleyers and i will not get these benefits through the bios...

Is there no way i can do it?

What?... Overclocking through bios is the exact same thing as overclocking through programs, just less likely to cause issues.

Ocing in the bios will not give advantage over other players on any game. The advantage of ocing on games is that if you have a lan party your computer can be the server.
