Hi guys


I want to overclock my Amd phenom 2 x4 945 (95w) proccesor, i have an Asus M4a785td v- evo motherboard, and i just want a little upgrade from 3.0 GHz to 3.2 or 3.4 i have a cooler master tx3 air cooling system, thermaltake commander chasis and a pair of thermaltakes thunderblades fans, so my pc temperatures are really low

CPU: idle :26
full load: 33

i also have enought psu for that a thermatake tr2 600w, is not the best psu out there but it will be fine for that and for 4gb of ddr3 ram and a HD7770


it will be nice if i wont need to change cpu voltages

sorry if i wrote something wrong, i am from colombia and still learning english


thanks in advance

Hi and welcome to Tom's forum.

What RAM do you have? That CPU is a locked CPU, so, you have to use FSB for overclock and that also change the RAM, NB and HT frequency.

Perfect, take a look on Google about the FSB and what happend when you change that. At the beginning we would need change the RAM frecuency from 1600MHz in your BIOS to 1066MHz or so, when you read the FSB relation with the RAM you will understand why.

Let me know ;)
