help!!!!


Overclocking amd phenom 9850 black edition 200mhz gain requires v core at 1.6v
can i run this without damageing the cpu?
can i boost any other voltages to bring v core down
to a lesser voltage?
Is this normal for revision b3 black edition?

changed multiplier and voltage only no other changes
were made to accomplish overclock.

10% over normal voltage is okay.
More than that and you may be shortening the life of your CPU.
Most important thing is not to exceed 65-70ÂșC.
Check for errors with Prime95.

Orthos is based on Prime95 and works fine in Vista x64.

Since your processor is a Black Edition, AMD has specs for voltages and temp limitations for all their Black edition products
on their website. I would never recommend to exceed either voltage or temperature set by AMD, for they have tested
these limits and arrived at these figure for very good reasons.
