Hi all, please help with Phenom overclocking!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I am having troubles with OC settings, my BIOS doesnt make any sense and my system runs slower than my old one which was an athlon duel core,

somehow i mamaged to make that work right as i had the Asus motherboard and it all worked out nicely, however this time i decided to save some money by buying the AsRock motherboard and it has done me no favours,

i dont get how the CPU frequency can be 200MHZ when i have a 2.6GB processor, i mean, i know it has to do with the multiplier which is by the way at 29 and 200MHZ

i am told to raise the multiplier to 15 but how can i do this when i am already at 29??

oh guys if you are a whiz at OC'ing phenoms then please get in touch and i will stroke your ego as much as you like!

the original phenom was a really bad overclocker.
there is not much you can do to get more out of it.
