Overclocking AMD 4100, Limited by RAM?

Last response: in Overclocking

CPU: AMD FX 4100 3.6 GHz (Stock cooler)
RAM: Mushkin 8GB at DDR3 1333
GPU: AMD 5670 1GB
PS: Coolermaster Extreme 650W

I've heard peope reaching up to 1GHz clocks on the stock cooler, but I have trouble reaching a stable clock at 4.0(Turbo goes to 3.8 though)? The only reason I can think of is either my RAM or my cooler, which should I be angry at? :sol:

You need more voltage.

You mean voltage to my CPU correct? But I thought volting only came later for more serious OC'ing..

Not really, different chips perform differently.

Some may hit those clocks at stock, while others may need more voltage.

Yours needs more voltage.
