Phenom X3 8450 MAX OC help required Tags: CPUs DDR2 Phenom Overclocking Last response: January 16, 2013 6:30 PM in Overclocking Share Mobz January 16, 2013 6:23:31 PM Alright then, I want to OC this old CPU to the max, but all I managed to get out of it is 2.5ghz.... Thats 400mhz increase. Phenom x3 8450 2.1 GA-MA78G-DS3H 1x 2GB DDR2 800mhz 1x 2GB DDR2 1066mhz 2x 1GB DDR2 1066mhz I havent changed the voltage, its on Auto. Clock Ratio on x10.5 CPU frequency on 240 Memory clock i downgraded to x3.33 to make it be 800mhz please point out what im doing wrong. anything above CPU frequency 240 makes it revert to default. No kidding, i want to try to make it give me 3Ghz. started overclocking on stock fan, and on idle it was at 52c. changed the fan to G-power II pro by gigabyte which i found around the house. now temp is 35c so i dont have temperature issue's, in fact i still have way to go. so guys, lets get clocking.
