    I have a Biostar ta790gx a2+ and I'm running a +7850 Black Edition at 3.2 ghz. I have my ram overclocked to 1066 at 5-5-5-15. I would like to know if i can get any higher then that because I can't get it to go any higher. I don't have a heat pipe over my mosfets could this be the reason why I can't boot higher then 3.2 ghz?

    I have a zalman cnps9700 Led cooler on my cpu.

    When I had my Asus P5N32 SLI PLUS board I had to reset my BIOS everytime it recognized my CPU as being a "new" cpu everytime I had overclocked far enough for it to register to the board as being so. EG if I went higher than 3.79 say to 3.8 it would display a messge saying new cpu detected updating "bios files" or whatever anyway whenever after this I wanted to go back to a lower setting say 3.2 or 3.0 the computer wouldn't boot unless I "flushed" the BIOS by resetting before attempting to set it at this clock which worked as long as I "flushed".

    65nm K10 cpu weren known for getting high overclocks. i say your overclock is good, and probably is the most u can get of it.

    EDIT: did u play with the vcore and the ht multiplier?

    Hi again I messed around with my cpu some more last night and I got it to 3.4 ghz STABLE!!. All I had to do was put on ACC to auto and my computer booted right away. I ran Prime 95 for 2 hrs last night and I got a max temp of 26'c but the heat came on in my house today and I ran it with the heater on and went to about 29'c max load. I'm pretty happy I got it to 3.4ghz but I might need those mosfets to get higher then that I'm gonna order them when they come in stock so I'll keep you guys posted on what I can get with this processor.

    You have an original Phenom-based Athlon. That may be the highest OC you may get. Original Phenoms/Athlons don't overclock nearly as well as their newer Phenom II/Athlon II 45nm parts. I'd say that you have a great overclock (my Phenom 9750 couldn't get over 2.8GHz stable, and my motherboard didn't support ACC).

    Just ordered some mosfet coolers for my motherboard. They should be here by Saturday or probably Monday at latest. I cut my hand while trimming a narrow slice off an old heat sink and I put it on the mosfet it did seem to get stable at lower voltages. The strip I cut was kinda small and covered like half of the mosfet but with the new ones i ordered i should get it higher then 3.4 ghz. These are the mosfet coolers i got http://www.ultimatepccooling.com/thhrmocoty3.html.
