If nobody knows i have a question about overclocking. This site overlocked their phenom ii x4 810 cpu to 3.2 ghz. The problem with this cpu is that it is not black edition. How to i overclock something that locks its multipliers. I read about raising the HTT clock and Northbridge speed. However, it is locked on AMD overdrive.

Thank you.

Hi there,

I have a this gateway motherboard and i am wondering if i can put this AMD processor on the motherboard.

My motherboard says that it only accepts AMD SOCKET AM2, however, i currently have a Phenom II X4 810 2.6ghz that is AMD SOCKET AM3.

That CPU will not fit that MB.

the cpu will not work because its 125 watts and your motherboard is max of 95 watts.
