AMD 9950 Phenom OC question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a 9950 phenom BE processor (stock clock 2.6ghz) and an msi DKA-790GX-Platinum mobo.

I am unable to overclock my system past 2.8ghz. when i try to push past the 2.8 mark my system wont boot.

I was hoping someone would have some insight or know if there is specific settings i need to change elsewhere to be able to move higher.

thanks
