amd chips are more dependent on temp than voltages. as long as your temps stay below 55C you are fine. i personally won't go over 1.55 vid and try to stay under 50c load

Thank you Is there a way to bump up the clocking by small incraments?

assuming your 7750 is a black edition it will have an unlocked multiplier. what i would do is drop your fsb to the stock 200 and underclock your ram and nb. then raise your multiplier one notch at a time until the computer won't boot. go back one notch and run some stablility tests. then bring your ram and nb back up to stock. then raise your fsb by 1 until it won't boot anymore.

thats my process at least

It is the black edition, the FSB is at stock. How do I underclock my RAM

The ram is probably on a divider, or it might be listed with options such as 667mhz, 800mhz, 1066mhz. Anything under 800mhz will be underclocking it. I can't quite remember what the dividers should be set at, but if it is presented as a ratio in your bios then set it one lower, check CPU-Z in windows to see if it worked.

Also those Phenom I's didn't OC very well, so if you went from 2.7 to 3.0 you might be close to max OC.

The RAM is on a divider and has options for lowering and increasing. Yea I think I am close to max OC.
