My System Specs

Default AMD 5000 BE on my Gigabyte GA-MA790FX

I finally tried overclocking my CPU. I have only changed one thing (made the multiplier to 14x instead of 13x) and i am running at 2.8ghz now. I don't notice any performance improvement, but I would like to push it a little bit further. I don't really want to touch the voltage, but i will try bumping the multiplier up to 15x to see if it will run @ 3 gHz. I don't have a fancy cooler. just a thermaltake silent K8 80mm cooler.

I didn't think it would be that easy to make the cpu run a little faster
