so i unlocked 2 cores and now i want to overclock

How much different is overclockin an amd compared to an intel?
post #2 of 21
if your using the stock cooler dont overclock it much
and watch the temps, 60c is too hot

bring the multiplier up one at a time
and bump the core voltage one step when it becomes unstable

im at 3.6

since i cant see core temps i dont know them but the cpu temp says 60c

use cpuz to verfy overclocking, hwmonitor to check temps

oops, 70c is the max temp on the cpu

62C, but most phenoms get very unstable at 55C and beyond.

Watch your voltages, that board doesn't have mosfet cooling. Don't push it too hard.

Two reasons I wouldn't overclock (or even unlock) at all:
1. stock cooler
2. the motherboard:
A. Phenom II x2 unlocked consumes 125W
B. Board has 2+1 power phase unheatsinked, probably not rated for 125W and even if it was it couldn't support 125W at all anyway.
C. Expect the board to catch fire upon first stress test if you continue this.

Sorry to say this but if you want to overclock any 125W processor (or even be running a 125W processor in the first place) you need a minimum 6+2/8+1 (recommended 8+2) power phase AND mosfet heatsinks.

what heatsink do you have on it?
