it doesnt need to be a black edition if you have the asus crosshair formula. heres how: you should download amd overdrive from the asus site and then read and learn how to increase your variables: voltage, memory clock etc etc. having someone tell you what to do and how to do it will not help you learn. this is a super tricky thing to do so the best thing is to immerse yourself in the knowledge. thats what i had to do after almost bricking my whole system.... also, the crosshair formulas are a cake walk to overclock with!! i have the crosshair 5 ROG and love it.
