Hi all

New to the site and overclocking, i spent around 5 hours yesturday scaling through these forums and on my pc scaling through the bios, after picking up great advice and learning from some great tutorials id like to thank every1 who contributes to these forums, you have all indirectly helped me without me having to even ask a question. Anyway, After stressing my pc out with games and stability tests in pretty sure iv got this stable, got my Phenom II 965T from 3.00ghz up to 4.3ghz. Im overjoyed at how its running but how far do you think i could push this cpu??

Thanks again people

Good thing i tried that :(  , problems pretty quickly as it lost a worker, i have toned my oc down to 4.1ghz and changed a few things that i read on the oc'n guide on this site, have restarted prime 95 and its got alot further than the last time but we will see, fingers crossed

It doesnt end til you stop it manually. After 4:40 if its stable, you are good.

I have mine OCed to 3.8 basically and it runs everything I throw at it. Altho it is a 1090T. Might make a difference heh.

Nice, i hope to eventually upgrade my cpu to an AMD FX-4 4170 Black Edition 4 Core 4.2GHz Socket AM3+. Any experience with this processor?

Not me no, havent felt the need to upgrade, or sidegrade in that case, or even go Intel, yet.
