  1. Have you checked this out? I think it's a pretty thorough guide with some extra tips.
    Dolk's Guide to the Phenom II
  2. keep in mind that reading more guides will help with a safe overclock. but since the phenom 955 is a black edition it can overclock very easily due to its unlocked multiplier. try downloading amd overdrive and start out with the auto overclock. software overclocking is not as efficent but its a good start.

    when you start to overclock manually, make sure to build up and run stress tests. if you are not willing to dedicate time to stress tests then stick with the auto overclock
