Can I overclock my 560BE?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
CPU: AMD Phenom II X2 560 Black Edition Callisto 3.3GHz
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103887

Currently unlocked to a quad core, and clocked at 3.6Ghz
Multiplier: x18.0
Bus Speed: 200.9 Mhz
HT Link: 2009 Mhz
Core Voltage: 1.416v

Idle temps: 36C (stock cooling)
Max load (30minutes of prime95): 75C (stock cooling)
__________________________________________________ ______

Assuming I am going to remain on stock cooling, can I overclock? I have 4 120mm fans and one 140mm fan in my case, great airflow.

I have never actually overclocked before, other than my minor .3 overclock

Those max load temps are already above what Phenoms like to be running at IIRC, so I wouldn't try clocking it further. Try to lower the Vcore if you can, and the load temps should come down.

But if you are looking at long term overclocking, definitely get yourself a good CPU cooler. Something like a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ or a Xigmatek S1283 is reasonably cheap yet perform very well.

you definitely need an aftermarket cpu cooler.


get the hyper 212+ if you want $50-60 cooling performance for half the cost ($25-30). If money is not a problem for you, get a Noctua or Thermalright ($85-90).

Maybe take it down to ~1.4v then test it, if it's stable go slightly lower and test again. Rinse and repeat until you run into stability problems.
