I found out the CPU Ratio is the multiplier

I'm running 200MHz x 18 (3.6 GHz) at the moment without a problem, what do you guys think it's gonna take pumping through the vcore for 3.8~4.0 GHz? I really want to avoid any CMOS resets if i can help it

I have the same processor as you and i have never needed more than 2 cores especially as it is at 4.2ghz, check out my guide in my sig its helped alot of guys with their overclocks plus i put some of my personal overclock settings so you can try those as well.

However i don't recommend overclocking with the stock heatsink, temps may get to high for comfort. A good cheap alternative is the hyper 212+ my temps never pass 40c under full load using LINX

Honestly I can't imagine hitting 3.8 or 4.0 on the stock cooler, if you can do this I will absolutely shocked. But remember to monitor those temps! Don't go above 55C if you can help it.

I hit 4.0 with 1.45V on my 555 2core, and 1.475 4core. But remember each chip is different. Also remember that just being able to boot is not the same as being stable. You might boot into windows with 4.0 @ 1.4V, but then run prime95 and have workers fail instantly or in an hour.


Other than that, literally just play around and have fun, that's what OCing is all about

Oh and P.s. I know you asked me about this before --

The board is a 3+1 power phase. DO NOT UNLOCK, DO NOT OVERCLOCK. Get a new board for this.

The problem is this was the best AMD M-ATX board i could find to fit in my case...
What other options do i have?
