AMD 2.3 Ghz Phenom 9600 AM2 Quad Core Overclocking Tags: CPUs Overclocking Quad Core Phenom Last response: July 11, 2009 12:51 AM in Overclocking Share w0tness July 10, 2009 11:11:52 PM Hey there folks. I was wondering what was needed to OC my CPU. Currently my RIG concists of: Gigaybyte 585 WATT Odin PSU. 2.3 GHZ Quad Core Phenom 9600- Black Edition. MSI K9A2 Platinum Motherboard, 1066 FSB. 2 x 2 Kingston 1066 Hyper X DDR-2 Memory MSI Geforce Gtx 275 - Twin Frozr OC Edition Do I need to update my BIOS for the most efficient overclocking? Will my PSU be able to support higher frequency voltages? I know these things usually work with trial and error, but I'm just a bit cautious seeing as I haven't done much overclocking in the past. Thanks guys!

Do you guys think this is about as much as I can get? I haven't adjusted the voltages or anything. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
