overclocking AMD

Hello there gang,
I never overclocked a CPU before. I just put together a nice system.
Amd 3700+ 939 2.2Ghz with a Asus A8v with a Big Typhoon 120mm fan. Could some one give me the step by step inst. on how to overclock the system.
I heard it can be over clocked and be stable at 2.87Ghz! Hope some one can help:)

  1. Thanks for the link, it is real good. I downloaded Genclock and was able to get 2.75G out of the xp3700+ 939. I have a feeling I can do better though if I new how and which item on which menu to change inorder to tweek it a little; also what is the fastest memory IO can us e on my MOBO. Right now I got the FSB down but still have a long way to go. I guess as far as Bios is concerened I never got into it. Anyhow, I thank you again Redline24.
  2. Well, 2.75 is pretty good but it wont go much higher, if at all.

    My friend somehow O/C'ed his 3700 S939 to around 4ghz on air. It was kind of stable, not to mention he has like 8 fans in his case.
