  1. So you want to be a badass and overclock your AMD processor. Well, you can!

    Simple rule to follow when overclocking.

    Multiplier * FSB = MHz or how fast your CPU is running at (1000Mhz = 1 Ghz)

    First start your computer up.
    Enter BIOS either by DEL, ESC, or F1.
    Depending on your BIOS find the Misc settings.
    Change your Multiplier to maxium to start with.
    Then change the FSB to the lowest setting.
    Exit and Save.
    System works fine then go back in and increase FSB 10 - 15 Mhz.
    If you overclock to far and nothing loads or it freezes and you cant get back to BIOS then unplug the computer. Pop the battery off the mobo for about 20 seconds. Then replace and try again.

    I overclocked my AMD Athlon 64 3700+ Socket 754 (Rated at 2.4 Ghz stock)
    to this


    2.7 Ghz
    I am killing Intels hahahah!

    It would be worth mentioning that overclocking with a stock cpu heatsink and fan is not such a good idea!!!!

    also wanna note that doing that would be unstable. I tried overclocking my (939) amd 3700+ 2.2 and I have proper cooling but it still gets hot when I try to OC. I was able to get it up to 2.8 and could have went hotter but whenever I did stability test the failed until i raised the volts. So why you using stock its not going to be that stable.

    If you wanna go higher, watercooling might do the trick ;)

    lmfao never even thought about that. really you can overclock both of them the just have there individual avantages. so really it should have a whole intel vs. amd feel.
