Overclocking AMD Phenom II x4 965 Tags: CPUs Overclocking AMD Phenom Last response: April 24, 2010 2:22 PM in Overclocking Share xxenergyxx April 23, 2010 7:00:32 AM Hi guys, I have a build that I want to over clock. I want to overclock my AMD Phenom II x4 965. Can you guys give me any tips where to start? I've read that I should definately get a aftermarket cooler. Any recommendations? Also, I have a ASUS M4A79XTD EVO , with a bunch of overclocking utilities, should I use this? I'm not too famliar with voltages or multipliers or vcore, but I plan to do some reading on this soon. I am also planning on adding some 120mm fans in my case. I will also overclock my 4890 HD using the ATI overdrive in Catalyst control center. Thank you for any input, have a great day.

General rule - DON'T use CPU overclocking software through Windows 7, unless you can't overclock through the BIOS because it doesn't support overclocking or is locked. Adding more fans would be a good idea, overclocking can heat up your CPU quite a bit. An excellent aftermarket CPU cooler would be the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus.
