    Default Overclocking CPU with MA78GM-US2H

    Hi, I just bought a MA78GM-US2H motherboard and want to overclock my CPU via BIOS. I'm not interested in using EASY TUNE 6, cause It takes risks.

    How can I do it?

    NOTE: I own an AMD PHENOM X3 8650.


    Thanks in advance...

    sasaman344 That AMD Phenom 8650 is a Toliman. It will not overclock You need a black edition for overclocking. I had your setup the best I could do is a 205fsb@11.5X. I sold that AMD Phenom 8650 and bought a Black Edition for much better overclockability.

    Ok, thanks. I never figured out about the difference between Black edition and other editions. It sucks I can't overclock too much, hate to see bottlenecks.

    That is a great cpu for AMD Power Monitor. It will save you a bundle with AMD power monitor. It works well with AMD cool and quiet enabled in bios. I sometimes use this tool even though I'm overclocking. When I don't need the speed. If you want you can download it from here -----> Click on Download Now! and try it out. If you do be sure to right click on the little icon in the task bar after the program installs and uncheck the Hide feature. Also right click the icon and set the power scheme that you want.. Technical Download Details You may want to try AMD overdrive Download AMD OverDrive™ here http://www.amd.com/us-en/0,,3715_153..._15359,00.html
