Hi,
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
first time.

(I dont want to overclock anything other then the CPU)

Thankyou,

I don't know where you live. But usually idle temps=roomtemp+(5-12c)

Just go to bios and set multiplier to x18. Also check vcore. For 3.6ghz it should be atleast 1.34v
With this cooler you can easily reach 3.8.. Just raise vcore to 1.37v-1.38v

So set multiplier to x18.
What is the 1.34v for?
and raise vcore to 1.38?
is there anything else?

(Sorry i am new to all of this :D  )

Read the guide I posted earlier.

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.
