Need help Overclocking CPU

Hi i am gonna overclock for the first time and i need some tips and guides in how to do this.


Phenom II X4 965 BE @ 3.4 GHZ STOCK


8GB Corsair vengeance 1600mhz


AMD Sapphire 6950 2 GB


Antec Neo Eco 620 WATT


Antec Kuhler 620 


Some random 30 inch Samsung TV on 1360x768 res

download, install, run, validate online, and paste link here



On any OC, this will always help;

Increase voltage by small increments, like .25 or so, and also bump frequency a little, like .1 or .5 or something

Any progams i should use to OC and monitor like speed fan and CPUZ etc.

core temp. It's minimalistic and shows the frequency, temp, voltage and % load on each core.

Anybody wanna give me a step by step guide / tutorial in how to do this the proper way since it is my first time and i need to OC it because of a bottle-necking issue.


No one needs to give you a step by step its fairley simple increase voltage by . X and then increase frequency by . B

Then use cpuz to monitor temps

and prime 95 to stress test
