I am having problems overclocking my processor to make it suitable for the games that I play. I am dissapointed that it only pushes 2.1 gHz and I want it to overclock to at least 2.8-3.0 gHz. I currently have a Gateway PC and I tried going into the BIOS settings at boot and I did not see an option where I can overclock the PC. I heard a few people say that Gateway does not allow overclocking, but I just want to make sure. Is there any way possible that I can overclock this processor? Please help!!
I have so far overclocked my AMD X3 Phenom to 2.43Ghz. Still testing the load temps but so far it's pretty stable....probably won't be going past that until I get a better heat sink fan. Let me know what your results are. Maybe we can compare.
I find it hard to think that you might be able to push a Phenom to 700mhz over stock. They are not known for OC'in altho i did get 900 on my X2 thats as far as it would go and even then it was not stable highest stable w/great air was 3.4 thats 800mhz. Good luck tho
