Hey all:

Just built a system for a friend - I used the AMD Phenom II X3 710 2.6GHz with a Gigabyte board for his build. However, I can't seem to OC this chip in the BIOS or using AMD OverDrive --- why is that?

Currently running at 2.6Ghz with Core Multiplier @ 13.0x

Why can't I go to 14.0 or 14.5 with this sucker?

Thanks!

Only the black edition AMD cpus alow you to bump up the multiplier.
Read some overclocking guides here, and on the net on other approches.
