anyone overclocked one? if so how far does it go?, the cooler i wanna get for it would be the COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus, the stock speed being 3.2 Ghz.
is 4Ghz achieveable on air? im gonna get a coolermaster haf 922 with is cuz i know what awsome airflow qualities it has.
just so you guys know im gonna have that in a GIGABYTE GA-790XTA-UD4
mobo with 4 GB DDR3 1600Mhz ram with a 750w psu cua ive read ram and mobo can be an effecting issue and i forgot to specify, the processor i will get is the black edition.
no ive never overclocked before, i tried to once but my current set up is totally locked (being a lenovo lol, the bios doesnt even have the options)
i know roughly what to do, i think if i take the core clock to around 211/213 then play with the multiplier from there obviously upping the voltages as required?
yeah, they are am3. but they will have DDR2 controllers so you can still use them with AM2+ mobos.
tbh i wouldn't bother messing with the HT at all, id just worry about the multiplier. raise it one bump at a time and increase voltage when needed.
i wouldn't go above 1.51 vcore.
i find its much quicker and easier to use AMD Overdrive for initial overclocking. find what settings work without needing to constantly reboot. once you found the best settings, stability test then commit to BIOS.
good luck anyway, and let us know how it works out.
