Default Re: Overclocking My AMD 64 X2 3600+ 2.0GHz Manchester

I don't know if I trust bumping the voltage from 1.35 to 1.5. When I had it 2.8GHz, it seemed to make quite a bit of difference. I've backed it off to 2.6GHz for the time being. I'll mess with it more later on. Oh, yeah, I may have to underclock the memory. That's how I had it with my last CPU overclock (Opty 170), but I also had 4 sticks of RAM then, too.

AMD FX-8320 Vishera 8-Core 3.5GHz (4.0GHz Turbo)
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4x4GB)
EVGA SuperClocked GeForce GTX 760 2GB w/ EVGA ACX Cooler
MSI GTX 460 (Dedicated PhysX)
