HELP OVERCLOCKING AMD Phenom II X4 920!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello,

Im new to Overclocking, and I has wondering if anyone had experience overclocking the AMD Phenom II X4 920 2.8GHz processor? I used the autoclock to get it up to 3GHz, but I know it can do more than that...

Look at my system info to see what Ive got!

Start by raising the fsb from 200 to 220 in bios (you may have to manually input the value depending upon your boards bios). It should run fine at that fsb with auto vcore. From there on, raise the fsb by 1/2 and test stability each time by running P95. You should also keep a note of the vcore at each test. The moment it becomes unstable, go to bios and increase vcore by the smallest amount allowed and test stability again.
For 24x7 use, 3.6GHz should be a very fine OC for you. Never let the vcore/temp rise above 1.5v/65c. There are plenty of other things to consider while finetuninhg the OC, for that go through the OC guides here and then ask anything you want clarification on.
