Hi Goss,

Bit of a thread hijack but as your new we'll let you off!

Software OCing is not reliable. Using the Bios is by far the most controlled way of OCing.

Check out the guides here in OCN under the AMD section.

It's not harmful, and software OCing is fine for the GPU, but you have far greater control using the BIOS to overclock.

try 1.375v on cpu
1.275v on NB
overclock by FSB
lock PCI-E clock on 100
lower the HT Link multiplier
lower ram multiplier
try to get ur CPU to 3.8Ghz by fsb only without touching multipliers
try to get ur NB to 2.6-2.8
try to lock ur ram at 1600Mhz not highter
try to lock ur HT Link at 1.8Ghz-2Ghz not highter

should work

The thread is finished and people keep bumping it, have you read it?

I tried that. Except my RAM is 1333, so I kept it at that.
