AMD Phenom OC Problem/Question Tags: CPUs AMD Phenom Last response: July 11, 2009 9:01 PM in CPUs Share dakrisht July 11, 2009 9:15:36 AM Hey all: Just built a system for a friend - I used the AMD Phenom II X3 710 2.6GHz with a Gigabyte board for his build. However, I can't seem to OC this chip in the BIOS or using AMD OverDrive --- why is that? Currently running at 2.6Ghz with Core Multiplier @ 13.0x Why can't I go to 14.0 or 14.5 with this sucker? Thanks! More about : amd phenom problem question Lee-m July 11, 2009 10:22:57 AM Only the black edition AMD cpus alow you to bump up the multiplier. Read some overclocking guides here, and on the net on other approches. mindless728 a b à CPUs July 11, 2009 9:01:50 PM you will have to change the base clock (standard 200MHz) Can't find your answer ?
