More about once again
  1. Well, the easiest is to go into your BIOS and start increasing the CPU multiplier. Since you have a black edition CPU, the multiplier is unlocked.

    Just boot into your BIOS (don't use AMD Overdrive software, BIOS is the way to do it) and bump the multiplier up one notch. Reboot back into Windows and see if you can log in. If so, then start running Prime95 as a test. If that works, you can try bumping up the multiplier again and going through all of this again. You'll know when you've reached the limit.

    That's the basic way of doing. Rather than go into more detail, for more advanced topics I would suggest you go to the following link and read some more:


    There are plenty of links and info in that posting.

    The following posting pertains to Black Edition AMDs and is a good first read:
