So I would like to SAFELY overclock my CPU but I want it to be stable, I have already slightly overclocked my gpu and memory performance using AMD CCC.
Will my CPU be overclockable and what bonus will it give me in games and overall performance.
Also what program is best to use for this?
Finally to test its stable I've heard a lot about stress testing, is this a viable way to check its stable?

Thanks in advance, any help is appreciated.

    Your mobo doesn't allow cpu ocing and your cpu can't be oced anyways.
  2. No OC for company brand , like HP dell acer .. whta the hell !
  3. Ah well, I thought something along those lines was going to be the case as in bios the OC is greyed out, thanks for the clarification! and for taking the time out of your day to help :)
