  1. I have a Phenom II X2 560E on a Gigabyte 870-A UD3. The phenom is cooled using a Coolermaster hyper 212 plus. Any suggestion to overclock the cpu so i can see an obvious change?

    Since this is a Black Edition processor it means that your Cpu multiplier is unlocked. A good place to start would be to bump up the multiplier one step at a time without increasing voltage to see how much you can get for free. You should do stability testing on each incremental step before trying to go higher.

    I have a question here. What is the difference between increasing the value of HT link and increase the multiplier? I am still new to overclocking.
