AMD phenom II X4 965 BE

Finally i got a new cooler for my CPU and the temp are really low @ idle it shows 40-43 degree C... So i was thinking to OC a bit and i think it does increase the performance right ?? cos i have never done OC and i really dont know what could happen... please help me with this.. :)

My specs:
processor:AMD phenom II x4 965 BE
motherboard:ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO
ram:4GB corsair vengeance
gpu:NVIDIA 9800gt
psu:corsair tx850W
cpu cooler:cooler master 212 evo

  1. Hold it.

    That is NOT a low idle temperature for stock 965 BE. Unless you are perhaps in India or some such with no air conditioning.
    What is the temperature of the room you are in?

    Standard temps are about 30 degrees or a bit lower.
  2. yea i am from India.. well i couldn figure out the temp but it could be around 25(i dont know exactly)
  3. find highest maximum CPU clock without increasing voltage, it's very safe ... and then do a stability test, when the temperature reaches 50C sytem - 55C so if you want to raise again with the OC voltage increase then you will need a big CPU cooler .... old cases :D

    can u please tell me in detail how to do it and all...... :)
  5. Check out the Black edition overclocking guide sticky at the top of the section, its got everything you need to know :)
    I'd expect 4.2GHz at most from it, unless you have a golden chip its about the limit for denebs

    I'd also have the graphics updated next, time to start saving hehe

    detail will showed in your BIOS in (ADVANCED) or this : http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/amd-785g-motherboard,2441-6.html

    set overclock to manual Aand cpu voltage to manual
    ex: Stock Speed & Voltage (1.375v) multi x16.5 =3.4ghz
    - raise multiplier to X17 still use stock voltage , keep NB 200 and and test it use intelburntest software for fast result, if stable raise multi again to 18 ... again again and you will find max OC withou add voltage
