Phenom 9500 QuadCore OC Question

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
It's a Phenom 9500 Quadcore processor, with a Gigabyte 770 MSA-DS3 Mobo, been trying to overclock it for the past couple of days and still no luck.

If anyone could shed some insight on this and possibly tell me how to do it, it would be highly appreciated.

Oh god, a Phenom 1.
You're lucky to get a few hundred extra mhz out of that thing.

It was given to me by my uncle, he said it was old! lol, but an upgrade for me non the less..

I figured I wouldn't be able to get much out of it, but if there is a way, how can I? Because everything from the BIOs to OverDrive by AMD is still not letting me tweak anything.

Are you using the latest bios? If not, update it. The xx00 Phenom Is were absolutely horrible for overclocking... the whole TLB thing sorta neutered them anyway.

I'm assuming I am because even on the Gigabyte website there is NO live link to any downloads for the bios and or anything. Just manuals.

Go to downloads. Then select bios for the download type.

Anyway Phenom overclocks alot better with SB710/SB750 because of the ACC function. Without it, you're not going to see much of an overclock at all. Just try setting the bus speed to 205 and slowly work your way up giving it more vcore as needed. I doubt you will go very far, but best of luck.

Got it all downloaded, but it won't let me install. Says that I need to make sure it's the right version for my OS.

Which it never gave me the option, nor should it matter?

trust me the Phenom 9500 won't overclock well and it isn't even worth the trouble.You would need a black edition processor to even be able to overclock this thing beyond 200MHZ without BSOD(Some won't even do past 50MHZ like the 8600b). Only good Phenom I processor is the 9950BE. having ACC or the 710SB doesn't matter again since you don't have a BE processor.

I also love the original Phenom for the sheer fact that people off Craiglist love "Quad Core" and will pay more money for it than its worth.

It is basically a processor that is good for media encoding/having a ton of firefox tabs open. It should not be used for high end gaming whatsoever or even overclocked unless you have "BE" moniker behind it.

Thats not entirely true, I have a 9750 in an old pc that I use as a HTPC and could hit 3Ghz easy using the HT speed. That being said his probably will only be able to get an extra couple hundred Mhz at most, I am just being anal.
