I have an artic freezer 64 pro cpu fan. http://www.arctic-cooling.com/catalog/product_info.php?... I wonder if the cpu fan is strong enough or if I need a better one? Will I be able to increase from 3,4 to around 3,8 ghz? cpu is 32 idle. and around 45-50 during gaming. I have heard amd 965 max operating temp is 60? cpu fan is automatically running at around 1200rmp More about : overclock amd 965 saint19 a c 280 K Overclocking a c 158 à CPUs a b À AMD November 24, 2010 5:35:12 PM Hi. You can try 3.6GHz, at stock voltage usually work. About your temps, I'd not go above 60ºC. If you want more speed, maybe you need a better cooler. T_T a b K Overclocking a b à CPUs November 24, 2010 6:23:14 PM I'm certain you can get 3.8 GHz with your CPU. I have a 945 and I OC'ed it to 3.9 from 3.0. As saint mentioned, you may need a better cooler. I'm using a Titan Fenrir cpu cooler. www.frozencpu.com has some decent pricing with loads of inventory.
