My System Specs

I'm not sure if it really matters whether you do a frequency overclock, or a multi overclock, or a bit of both, so long as its stable. I think the easiest way to overclock those chips is to just do the multiplier, that way the memory and NB/HT stays constant and you can dial in the cpu's speed without the other components affecting stability too much. I had the fx-6100 and just overclocked the multiplier as far as it would go. You can then tweak the Northbridge and hypertransport if you want to get a bit mre performance. I think on air so long as you are below 1.45V and not over 50 degrees you are safe. There should be a guide on OC'ing the 8150 though, just google it up.
