Question Easiest and most safe way to OC a CPU? - 01-13-2017, 23:33 | posts: 24

my cpu is AMD FX-8350 black edition. I recently overclocked my hd radeon 7970 gpu to 1070mhz core clock, and 1575mhz memory. I also wanted to overclock my CPU, but I have no idea how to do it and the guides that I do find just confuse me. Thanks for any help.

Complete your specs profile so people know what you're wanting to OC with

I've got the same chip running at 4.8GHz so could give you some settings but depends on the rest of your setup

Don't think I would OC that CPU with that PSU, chances are with the GPU OCd it's already pretty close to it's limit

Yupp I 2nd that also. I am worried about that 550 watt psu, that is pushing the boundries already I think? Get something in the 750-850 watt range and then consider overclocking, I have a Corsair Hx 850 (watts) If you attempt as is you might very-well burn out your system then hate us for the rest of your life, haha.
