Solved Phenom II 965 Overclocking Tags: CPUs Overclocking Processors Phenom Last response: April 5, 2010 2:08 AM in Overclocking Share jahn6 March 30, 2010 4:14:02 AM So, I increased the multiplier to 18 and got 3.6ghz, so far its at 55.5 running prime 95 for a few hours. Im getting AM cooler tommorow to further OC. I am a newbie to OC so please help me. My understanding is that you first increase the multiplier then increase the voltage until prime 95 doesn't fail? What should the max voltage I should go for? 1.5v? Am I going to reduce the lifespan of my processor if I OC or is it perfectly okay if the temperature is low enough and the processor is stable with prime 95? Thanks!!!
