    hello sorry but i werent sure what was the most relevent forum to put this in.i have a phenomx4 9850 black edition cpu and want to overclock it but ive no idea what to do to make it happen.also when i do id like to know how far i can push it from its stock 2.4ghz speed without the need for extra cooling.i done a bit of reading up and i know they are made for OC'ing but i dont know the process of actually doing it.

    if i can get it up from 2.4ghz to 2.8-to-3ghz ideally that would be great.thanks in advance.

    That all depends on how long you want to run the processor before you fry it.

    A good guide for overclocking. Use it at your own risk.

    check the overclockers forums for that.

    It can be done, IF you know what you're doing. http://www.ocforums.com/showthread.php?t=556229
