I was just curious how much headroom I have on this processor, I don't want to go too wild and only want to bump it from 2.7Ghz to an even 3Ghz. My issue is I dont want to strain the processor and I don't want to create instability. I know from research that I have done that the 7750 is not the OC monster that everyone was hoping it was when it was first introduced but I figured 0.3Ghz couldn't be too tough. Not sure if it makes a huge difference but its in a GA-MA770-UD3 with 8gb Kingston hyperx 1066 (4x2gb) and is currently idling between 27&32c. Anybody know what kind of changes and how extreme will have to be made to push the little 7750 to where I want it and what kind of temp increases I can expect by doing it? Any and all help is appreciated, thanks ahead of time

Might be able to run 3.0ghz on stock voltage take the multiplier up to 15 and see if its stable in prime 95. i got 3.2ghz stable @ 1.425v on my old one.

I was on a thermaltake V1 and didnt hit 50C ever lol.

its trail and error to see how high you will be able to get your overclock as all systems are different. However, as i didn't see it in your post, make sure you are testing stability with prime95 small ffts and memtest86+. If you can pass 8+ hours of that then your system is stable as a rock.

Thanks guys, I guess I was just checking to see if someone jumped in like "Oh my god dude it took so much voltage to get mine to 3ghz! Water cooling setup is straining now that I am at 3.2ghz" or some crazy horror story
