see if you can unlock it to an x4

your ram, 1333 could limit your overclocking

if you have the stock cooler you wont be able to oc much anyway
watch the temps, max is 75c
http://products.amd.com/en-us/Deskto...False&f12=True

its not a black edition, so you cant up the cpu multi
just oc with the bus speed, bring it from 200 to 205 and see how things go

use cpuz to verify oc
hwmonitor to watch temps
http://www.cpuid.com/softwares.html

prime95 to test stability and check max temps

FYI
I would get a good CPU cooler, because the newer AMD cpu like the cold. Cooler is better for stablity.
Example
This is with Dry Ice.
AMD Phenom II 560 X2 hit 5.0ghz.

I can unlock it to an x4 but when I run prime worker 4 immediately stops working. Any ideas? Ive currently got the freq to 220 from 200 and the cpu voltage at 1.3875 from 1.3575..ran prime for 12 hours no issues..hottest it got was 63c I do need to upgrade my cooling system. Any ideas on a solid air cooling system? And any with blue LED's?

amd says 1.4 is max voltage, you might be able to go higher with a good cooler

more core voltage = more stable at higher speeds and higher temps
what error did prime95 give when a core stopped?

bring the ram down to 800 and test to see if thats whats limiting it

212+ is a great budget cooler, n520 or a50 are great also

if you want blue, look for led case fans, you can get them for around $4-10 ea

all ive done as far as ram goes is increased the voltage to 1.55v from 1.50v. My stock NB voltage is 1.1750...what increments should I go in as far as raising the NB voltage?

You need to disable that faulty core,atleast untill you get better cooling and can overvolt it enough.CPU should take 1.55v,CPU-NB 1.45v,HTT 1.35v.Not before better cooling though-60c is too hot.
