AMD Phenom II X4 955BE OC Help

Hi, this is my first time overclocking and my current Overclock seem's fairly stable with my current setup, Cooler is Corsair H50, PSU Is Antec Truepower Quattro 1000W and CPU is in title.

At the moment my overclock is only 400MHz (3.6GHz) at 1.424V, now the Motherboard automatically set the voltage for me, the mobo is Gigabyte GA-MA790GPT-UD3H, and set the voltage according to my overclock.

Now the voltage won't go any higher until i tick a special box about OverVolting but i won't touch that.

How would i tell how much overclocking headroom i have left with this voltage?

Thank's (sorry if i rambled)

Just keep increasing the multiplier until the system is no longer stable when running tests such as Prime95, 3dMark Vantage or 3dMark06. Definitely, if it won't post, then you know that was too much.

Read 4Ryan's sticky at the top of this forum on how to OC a black edition AMD CPU. It really explains a lot.

Happy OCing!
