First time overclocking

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just upgraded my motherboard and video card to a Asus m4a875-m with an Evga GTX460se, Im sticking with my Phenom x4 9550 2.2Ghz since it's been a good cpu for what I paid for it. I really want to squeeze a little more power out of the cpu, nothing too extreme. I have read articles here and on other Overclocking forums. Im a little unsure I dont want to brick my cpu.

Anyone worked on overclocking this cpu? Is it fairly simple to do through the bios on this board?

You can't brick your cpu but if you don't have adequate cooling it will over heat. You didn't list your cooler so I'm guessing your using the stock heatsink?

There is a guide here on OCN. Good Luck!

The cooler is the heat sink and fan that came with the cpu when I bought it. I have been checking some out. I think my power supply may be a little under geared even for the new graphics card This is kind of been a slow upgrade process.
