AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition Overclock

Hey guys, I'm new around here, and I was wondering if you guys think this build ideal for overclocking and how much I can overclock with it (MAX). I wanna get the best performance possible without spending more than this costs.
Here's the Build:


Corsair Obsidian 650d (With Aftermarket Fans)

Corsair H100 Water Cooling

ASUS Crosshair V Formula AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Gaming Motherboard with 3-Way
SLI/CrossFireX Support and UEFI BIOS

Patriot Viper 3 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model PV316G160C9QKRD

CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750M 750W ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Semi Modular High Performance Power Supply

HIS IceQ H787Q2G2M Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

  1. Did you read the guide that is stickied?
  2. no one can tell you what your max overclock is gonna be there are too many variables...not every chip is created equal yours could OC like a champ or it could be unstable 1mhz over stock speeds.....but that being said you should be able to get a decent OC out of that chip and cooler setup 4.0ghz-4.2ghz would def be reachable
  3. There are plenty of CPU overclocking guides on the internet, including here on these forums in the CPU and overclocking sections...(hint, they are really, really close to this forum topic in the directory)

    Also- I hear that www.Google.com works surprisingly well to find answers to questions.
