Hello and welcome to OCC,

I suggest that you read a few Guides before starting, this will allow you to understand how things work,.. you need to be vary familiar with your motherboards BIOS,.. and the Phenom II and how it behaves when overclocked,..


 We are all happy to offer helpful advice and how to apply it safely, but you must know the basics first.


Dolks Guide is vary good,.. please take the time to read "all" sections..

I had the same mobo/cpu combo previously before I went to the fx 8350. Tap the delete key while booting up to ente BIOS. Once inside the BIOS you have the intelligent tweaker option and from there you can increase your cpu multiplier incrementally to achieve the speed you desire. obviously don't just crank it off the bat take your time and run tests from inside windows to make sure things are stable as you go. There are also cpu voltage settings that may be needed to get your speeds up but definitely do research on the net and see what some other people have needed to do to jump to 4ghz if your not comfortable...melting your cpu would make it a lot less phenom-enal. I think I had mine at 3.8ghz but the 8350 is sitting at 4.6ghz on air
