Heya! I was just wondering if an AMD cpu can be overclocked? Or of course it can be, but i heard they werent "designed" for it. But if i should overclock it, how much could you recommend?

How do you honestly expect anyone to answer you if we have no idea what CPU it is?

that processor IS designed for overclocking. Providing you have a nice board and the chip is a C3 stepping, you should hit at least 3.8ghz by just adjusting the multiplier and core voltage.

All black edition processors are unlocked for overclocking.

yeppers even if it wasnt a BE you could up the FSB ,but with the 955 you just up the multi then finish with a little fsb overclocking to tighten up the whole system

Same as mine, easy to overclock, mine is a mild 3.8 ghz on near stock volts.
Get some half decent cooling on the CPU and check out the AMD OCing thread here.
That should set you on the right path.
As above the C3 stepping version is the best OCer in that family.
