  1. Your CPU is bottlenecking your 4850. I'd recommend overclocking your CPU.

  4. I would advice you get a quality PSU like a Corsair or seasonic before overclocking

    Overclocking is done in the BIOS, not via software.
  5. mine s not black edition.......so i have to possibly go for my fsb value.......wat value should i select....and do i have 2 make changes 2 voltage or any other values?
  6. If you want help overclocking then create a new thread in the "Overclocking" section of this forum.

    But like I said before, I recommend you get a quality PSU before overclocking.
