hello guys,

I'm shy to say but to be honest im new to computers, my processor is amd x3 440, have already read and watch many topics regarding unlocking the core but I dont think i can do it with my motherboard becasue it doesnt have a core unlocker, so i was thinking of overclocking it instead to give better performance. can anyone teach me a step by step procedure how to overclock amd x3 440?

many thanks in advance to all of you =)

I'm thinking that if your motherboard does not support core unlocking, it will provide (at best) little ability to overclock. Here is a good guide...

read through it, if you have questions, ask for clarification
Most of all, have fun with it...

Ahhh, that's because there is nothing in stone when it comes to overclocking.
The other part of that is that BIOS's differ between manufacturers, so something that is comprehensive for MSI does not fit for an ASRock or other board.
What do you know about the motherboard? Let me know the model number of your motherboard, I'll see what I can do to get you at least started

Okay, I can find very little about that motherboard... still checking

As far as the video card, if your graphics card has auxillary power input (yours does not), the manufacturer (Sapphire) should have some kind of utility to overclock the card. Sapphire does have an overclocking utility (called TriXX) but your graphics card is not supported by it.
