guys , I just bought a new mobo and i'll finally gonna be able to overclock my fx 8120 black edition (125w) . I've been reading about the subject for quite a while and i m positive i can perform a decent overclock, but i m not yet satisfied from what i know, so i m here asking for more information on frequencies, processors, voltages, motherboard features and all of that. Do you guys know good articles and valuable information about that? I decided to ask in here cause after some search using google i couldnt find exactly what i was looking for, although i did find some interesting articles about how general CPU works. What i m looking for is something more detailed and practical about CPU, Motherboard and Dram, theirs frequencies, voltages and how these interactions affect system performance. Btw thanks a lot for the post, OP, learnt a lot from it!
just in case, the new mobo i acquired is a GA-990XA-UD3 R5 (supports up to 140w, 8+2 phases) does not have the recommend chipset that this guide aims, but i m positive i can safely overclock on it.
