    Overclocking my AMD Phenom X4 940

    Hai,

    Recently I've bought a AMD Phenom X4 940 and a Gigabyte GA-MA790GP-DS4H motherboard.

    It's a black edition and here are my specs:

    Power supply: 650W
    Graphics card: ATI Radeon 4870HD 1GB GDDR5
    Memory: 4GB DDR2 880mhz

    CPU:

    MOBO:

    Those are my default specs. I personally find them insanely low for the cpu.

    How far can I go with this (by far I mean not really touching the cpu voltage etc etc)

    Thanks in advance

    Still my HT link is pretty low?

    Update your bios man, to the latest version. You will have a better time with your board, F2 is a Pre PII bios.
