  1. This info is all applicable to the new fx series processors, I suggest you start off by reading this first:

    Post back with any specific questions you have.
  2. yeah thanks for the link, i seen that already. i was hopeing there was something short and sweet. Mobo/bios come with a program et6. so i can click on it and it goes from 4.0 to 4.2. i was just hopeing there was some simple math to clock it useing air rather than adding a liquid cooling system. I was kinda wanting to get it to a solid 4.6-4.8. guessing im biteing off more than i can chew. thanks again.
  3. Here is one more guide:

    Just slowly read through them both, overclocking is not very hard and is actually a very fun challenge. 4.6Ghz should be achievable on air cooling so long as it is not the stock cooler being used.
  4. Thanks for links!!
