Buses refuse any type of Overclocking [need expert]

so I have this motherboard...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128514

Id like to Overclock the HT Link and The Front Side Bus and the external FSB(BCLK)
I have tried increasing them as much as one mhz, and even messed with voltages.. and I cant seem to find any guides for OCing buses..

My system wont run unless the bus settings are default...
What can I do? My motherboard always runs so cool

  1. What cpu do you have. Black edition cpus have an unlocked multiplier so you do not have to mess with base clocks.

    The problem with playing with some of the buses is they MAY be linked to other things, so next thing you know you are playing with the pci-e frequency and memory frequency as well.

    FX-8350... yeah i kinda thought as much... but i have no idea how to do that, i kinda wanted a CPU clock and buses clock ..

    So im going to need some programs that monitor MOBO temps, and voltage editing guides for them all.. But idk where to get them..

    With multiplier overclocking, only the vrms and cpu will get hotter as the rest of the board does not get extra stress.

    Older guide for AMD overclocking, but still worth a read as not too much has changed at least when it comes to multiplier overclocking.

    It can take time to find the best overclock for your system, but the most easy way is multiplier modification and a bit of voltage.

    Also make sure you have good cooling for overclocking.
  4. One last question... Do you think just OCing my board itself a little, do you think ill need better FSB heatsink (external)?

    and thanks
  5. It is different for all systems. I mostly do Intel overclocking to be honest. All the AMD overclocking I did was just straight multiplier settings(those old 955's sure overclocked easy).

    The heatsinks on a board should be for the chipset and voltage regulation module(it cools the mosfets). the cooling provided with the board is good for most users

    Your cpu should have a better heatsink for sure as they can generate lots of heat at higher speeds.

    O yeah as far as CPU is.. Its watercooled with custom thermal with h100i.. So heat is covered
  7. Yeah that should take care of it.

    Make sure your case still has some air flow heat the vrm heatsinks if you can. the cooler they run the more efficient they can run. I notice a rise if VRM temps when I started using an H80i(not damaging, but still a rise of about 10c).
