  1. Drop frequency to 200 and up multiplyer to 17.5
  2. cpu voltage at 1.35 that will give you 3.5 ghz run your Hypertransport to 4000mhz

    hope you can keep it cool........... my Spin-q will not
  3. ^-1 multi is not unlocked

    for 3.5GHz you will have to do 250(Base Clock)x14(multiplier)
    you will have to lower the Hypertransport down a tad, for stability, try using 1.375v and either go up or down from there based on stability (Prime95), if unstable raise voltage, if stable lower voltage until it is unstable then up it again
  4. I stand corrected didnt think about locked multi
  5. uhmm i am locked... how can i lower hyper thread? also lower by a tad? hehe sorry what does that mean?

    my cooler is gigabyte G power 2, pro cooler.. can it be overclock up to 3.5ghz? 24/7 open?? room temp 30c.. haha

    same processor me.. amd phenom II 2.8ghz
