Overclocking Phenom II 720 Tags: CPUs Overclocking Processors Product Last response: April 18, 2009 7:53 PM in Overclocking Share whitefang April 18, 2009 7:37:20 PM Hey guys I am a complete noob to overclocking processors. here's my specs. My processor idles at 41C (I know, that sucks doesn't it? did I apply too much thermal paste?) Processor: phenom II 720 MotherBoard: Asrock a780GXE Memory: G.SKILL 4GB ddr2 1066 VideoCardS: two 4830's in crossfire Case: coolermaster rc-690 PowerSupply: Coolermaster 750W real-power-pro And... CpuCooler: XIGMATEK HDT-S963 92mm Rifle http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I want to use the overclocking tool that came with my motherboard, it's called asrock OC tuner. These are the options I have for overclocking Cpu frequency is at 200, PCI-E is at 100, CPU multiplier is at 14.0, and HT link ratio is at x10. I can change any of these options, just how do I do it and by how much? Thanks!!!

I'd advise you to overclock through the bios, though. Also, don't touch the PCI-E speeds. I haven't OC'd amd processors, but I imagine that you'll want to be changing the cpu frequency and multiplier. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
