Howdy ya'll, I just built my first rig and was just wondering if I could safely OC my Phenom II 955 BE (3.2GHz) to the stock 3.4 GHz clock of the 965 using the stock AMD cpu heatsink and stock 955 voltage, using AMD's Overdrive program. This is probably a dumb question, but i'm a noobie and just want to be safe. Thanks.
