Hey guys!
So I ordered a new CPU a few days back (Phenom II x4 965 BE) to replace my Phenom II x6 1035 T for gaming.

I want to OC, but my PC is a factory model ASUS CG1330. And OC via BIOS is restricted. That being said, I'm going to use the program AMD Overdrive. Is this going to be good / reliable?

I also got a GTX 550ti, as well as a coolermaster 212+ and a corsair 600 w psu.

Thanks guys!!
PS: going to be shooting to OC to about 3.8ghz.

Im pretty sure AMD overdrive won't work on your PC.The only program you can overclock it with is called K10stat.
And even then if you're serious about overclocking you should try to undervolt at the same time.That's because the motherboards on most premade PC's are made to provide only 125W pwoer to the CPU.
