CPU in question:
AMD Phenom X4 9850 Black Edition
[Can't post links lol]
I've been reading around that you can get it up past 3.0Ghz, but I don't want to take it that far. My wish/goal is to get this persons level:
[Can't post links lol x2]
2.7Ghz to be exact. For the past few years I've been using the stock settings because I didn't have much knowledge on overclocking, so naturally I didn't touch it. However, after reading around, apparently if you have the black edition and don't overclock, you're an idiot. So I would like to jump it up from 2.4Ghz to 2.7Ghz to maximize gaming performance and avoid buying a newer model for little while longer.
The only problem is, I haven't exactly found a good guide on how to overclock properly. Can anyone offer some advice on how I go about doing this? In a "...for dummies" fashion. I was hoping there would a 1-2-3 step guide, nothing overly-ridiculous.
My current clocks (via CPU-Z):
Bus Speed : 199.56Mhz
CPU Multiplier = x12.5
CPU Speed = 2495Mhz
CPU VID = 1.3000 V
Runs at 40 degrees (C)
I've got AMD Overdrive on here, I can tweak up the multiplier, but I'm getting all of these warnings, so I'll wait to see if I get any responses before I do anything stupid.
