Newbie @ Overclocking problems 9850 BE x4

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I started overclocking a few weeks ago I switched boards from DFI Lanparty 790gx-m2rs to M3A78-CM I recently wanted to get into overclocking just to see what I can pull out of this thing ( AMD Phenom x4 9850 Black edition) I ran Amd overdrive topped out at 3.0ghz before becoming unstable I upped the voltage a little bit +150mav and I managed to manually set the multiplier to 3.2 GHZ ran great for 8 hrs also ran amd overdrive stability test (1 Hr) 0 issues but still occasionally freezes what can I do I would like to mx this thing out at 3.4 GHZ ( I do have watercooling Corsair H50 yes its cheap But since I added an extra fan so I have a pusher and puller fan by temps dropped significally any recommendations a nyone??


ps sorry for the run on sentences

Dont use AMD overdrive to OC, use bios rather. Also 1 hour of stability test is not nearly enough. Run atleast 8+ hours of Prime95 on blend test.

Hi and welcome to OCN.

The 1st Phenom line isn't a good overclocker, so, you maybe need a lot of work to get that rig stable.

Now, you only have two options: Stable or not, don't exist stable with occasionally freezes, that isn't stable.

What can you do? Only use AOD for rise the multiplier (if you can), the voltage and other setting should be changed from BIOS, rise the CPU voltage in little steps until you get the rig stable.
