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.

  1. 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 65-70ºC.
    Check for errors with Prime95.
  2. Should have gone Intel :P J/K.
  3. i dont believe prime 95 will work with vista 64
  4. I wonder could other apps runing in the background like riva tuner
    interfer with my attemps to overclock my 9850.


    OS VISTA HOME PREMIUM 64 BIT
    BIOS AMI V2.1
    mb msi k9n2 diamond
    video sli x2 msi nvidia 8800 gt oc
    ram corsair 8gb PC 6400 (800)
    cpu 9850 BE
  5. 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.
