I am wanting to overclock my AMD Phenom II 955 BE from stock 3.2ghz to 3.6ghz.
I have a Thermaltake frio and my idle temps are 20-23 degrees celsius and when
I am on games the temps never go above 40-45 so the temps should be safe.
My motherboard is an Asus M4A87TD/USB3.
So, I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to overclock from 3.2ghz to 3.6ghz,
or if there are any video or typed guides that could help me? because this is my
(I dont want to overclock anything other then the CPU)
You often have to raise voltages in order to get an overclock stable. However, raising voltage means the processor will run hotter which can lead to instability. having the voltage too high can also cause instability on its own and can damage components if you set it way too high.
Every system is different. You just have to figure out which voltages will work for your system. You want to use the minimum voltage that will keep your overclock stable.
