AMD OC Chipsets

Hi there. This may sound like a stupid question but what AMD chipsets allow overclocking, and which chipsets are better? Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks.

  1. Your talking about overclocking the chipsets ? Why ?
  2. No. I meant chipsets that allow overclocking of the CPU. I'm fairly certain some chipsets don't allow overclocking, or else i'm an idiot.

    All chipsets allow for an overclock it is the BIOS that restricts the settings....The best overclocking boards for AMD chips has the 990 FX chipset currently

    I thought the CPU needed an unlocked multiplier!
  6. Not necessarily- you can often still overclock a locked multiplier CPU based on other factors. For instance, I can overclock my 2600 non-k by raising the vcore and the BLCK, but this only gets me so far. I realize we're talking AMD here, but the concept still applies to both camps.

    Yes, the easiest way is to use an unlocked mutli, but this also depends on what CPU family, MB chipset and BIOS settings you have at your disposal.
  7. @blackwidowRSA--->You have all those certification in your sig. yet you do not know that you can use the BCLK to OC...WoW I am losing my faith in the testing process...You should have them revoked for not knowing this simple fact....
