  1. ok i need to know more about you set up. so will other people that will try to help you... i have over clocked a amd 9850 be and my amd 940 be.... so i can help some... but you do know that the be cpu are easier to over clock... if its not a be then i am not sure it can be over clocked..... maybe you can over clock the fsb some but amd is a not like Intel. where they can be over clocked us fsb to over clock.. i may be wrong... amd be cpu's have unlocked multipliers that's what makes them able to be over clocked... so that's what i know..... i hope this helped good luck.. i am here if you needed any other help or input/info....
  2. Hi there yeas you are crrect after fiddling around i have managed to overclock it ( udsing fsb) to 230 fsb meaning its gone from 2.9 ghz to 3.2 ghz which is only a small oc i know but if i put it to 235 or 240 fsb it fails to boot the pc up unless i drop my ram down to 400 mhz :s ( ihave 800mhz apparently but for some reason default is 400mhz ?? ) as for the multiplier it is higher on the stock of 2.9ghz x 14.5.... i can change this down to 2.8 x 14 2.7 x 13.5 and so on to around x 7 i believe but i cannot change it higher than 14.5 so if you could help me resolve it around getting higher than 230mhz i would be much appreciated any info you need i will happilyu resoplve

    Thanx

    maybe you can push up the volts on the fsb some, ( a small bit at a time ) and maybe drop down the multiplier .5 points at a time from stock... ( my mobo multiplier only gos up to x16 ) i hate that but i will be over clocking the fsb too... i am only looking to get it to 3.5 on 3.7...

    3.2 is not to bad of a over clock.... keek a eye on cpu temp..... :ouch:
  4. Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

    You can read THIS guide, is the process to OC AMD locked processors.

    Now, bear in mind that like is a locked processor you also need change the timings of the RAM while you change the settings of the processor.
  5. lol my stock temp is runnin at 29 c lmao :) i cant get my head around it as its a stock cooler and im not sure exactly what you mean by changing the multiplier as if i do that it lowers the stock 2.9 Ghz and not sure what what i.e the voltage how do i do that ?? lol sorry complete noob to this

    like i side i do not know much about ur setup... look up ur mobo and key words over clocking so on...... drop the multiplier so you can raze the fsb more
  7. i never thought of it being the mobo hmm.... thats a good idea chap :D i thawt it was only the cpu to oc :P thanx i will have a look and let you know
