and also my ram is getting lower after overclocking my cpu?
and how would i go about ocing my gpu?

here are some pics

What was your stock voltage? Your temps are very good so I would say give it some more voltage and keep an eye on the temps. Do you have the option of setting your ram speeds independently or is it tied to the HT?

As for OCing a GPU in the bios or before you are in windows there isn`t a way. It is possible to flash your card with a modified bios but I don`t suggest doing that. Useing the tools in windows is a safe way of doing it.

stock is 0.85V - 1.425V
and ram i think is independent i got it to 470mhz so it would be 940mhz right?

Right. With knowing that I would give it more voltage then. Temps are key. As long as you are under 65 at full load (AMD`s don`t like getting hot) you should be good.

Burntest is actually very stressful so If your temps are good under that then they should be ok. I would give it 1.42 and see if that works for 3.6. I would say a safe max to be 1.5 but I also like to push things so 1.45 is more of a safe everyday voltage. If you can`t get 3.6 with under 1.45v then I dont think it is worth the extra 100mhz.

To test for true stability you should run Prime for the same amount of time that you usually play a game for. I consider anything after 5 hours of prime to be stable enough for me.

Very nice man. Temps look great too. Have you done any 3Dmark runs yet? It would be interesting to see what the results of the OC are having on your performance.

What are the available voltage controls that you have. The HT usually is dependent on the motherboard. Giving more voltage to your Northbridge can help with a higher OC.

Here is a good program to keep track of temps with: Realtemp
