total noob about oc'ing. read that this chip is easy to get up to 3.8. question is do i change the cpu clock ratio to x19 or the cpu nb freq multiplier to 19? i see where i can change the cpu voltage to 1.45v. but that is as far as i know. i have cpu-z linx prime95 and 3dmark vantage as well as amd overdrive and cpuid hwmonitor. but none of them do me any good if i don't know what to change in the bios. better safe then sorry i guess. any help would be appreciated thanks
