I've got this setup:

-Artic Cooler 7 HSF
-AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition
-MSI 870A G54
-G.SKILL F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL Ripjaws PC3-12800 4GB 2X2GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-24 Core i5 1.5V
-XFX Radeon 5770


I've already blown the motherboard by putting the voltage to high (don't remember how high) So i bought the same mobo again and want to try OC safely.


So what should I try with the settings? What kind of temps should I watch out for? Should I OC through the bios or use the MSI OC utility?


If anyone has a similar or the same setup I'd really appreciate help.


Thanks

Lot's of OC'ing tutorials out there. And, OC'ing forums.....

But, with a 955 the basics would be:
- increase the CPU multiplier in the BIOS 0.5 at a time
- run Prime95 & FurMark at each new step
- keep CPU temp under 70C
- keep GPU temp under 90C (I believe the card with throttle clock speed too...)
- you'll be able to run between 3.4Ghz and 3.6Ghz on stock voltages
- once you crash, bump the voltage up on notch and try the same clock multiplier again
- somewhere between 3.8Ghz and 4Ghz you'll notice you need several steps of voltage increase to get the next 0.5 multiplier to work
-QUIT at this point
- your not going to gain much more, just wild increases in power draw, crazy temps, and maybe even some smoke/flames....

we've clearly got some experienced overclockers here. We are humbled by their vast experience. Don't forget to choose a best answer if your question has been answered.

*Edit: I just realized this is an ancient thread. Nevermind me. My fault for aimlessly roaming the forums.
