Help overclocking

Anyone know how far you can push an PhenomX ii 945? Looking for a general idea of how much I can increase the FSB. Starting with a reliable number to me is better than incremental testing until i reach unstablility. Or maybe Im just lazy.


I just upgraded from a Dual Core. I have a aftermarket cooler, and air flow in the case is just ok

Last time I asked you guys how much I could OC my dual core, you were dead on the money as to how much I could increase the FSB

Thanks in advance for help

  1. go in the bios
  2. im using AMD overdrive The X945 are not black edition, and also my mainboard has the multiplier locked so bios is not a viable option. I do thank you for taking the time to respond.

    So the only way to OC, is to adjust the Front Side Bus Slider within AMD Overdrive.

    Wondering how much I can safely OC. If no one replies, I will have my own answer from stress testing. Last night I bumped to 3.4 and there were no issues whatsoever. So today Ill see how far past that I can get.
  3. good luck
