Trying to get a bit more performance out of this for gaming.(mix of Fortnite/BF5) From what I've read so far I should be able to bump the CPU to 4.0 or so safely. Is anyone familiar with Bios Version 3003 that could help me get there?

Thanks!

16GB of DDR3 1600 RAM
A88X-Plus v.3003
Athlon X4 860K
Radeon RX560

I believe enabling "High Performance" in the Windows power plan options would peg the CPU to 4GHz, as that is the stock boost frequency anyway?

As for overclocking on that board, it should be as simple as the AI Tweaker tab.
Enable "manual" mode under "AI overclock"... something (I forget the exact verbiage).
Change CPU Ratio, and further down the screen you should see "CPU voltage".

Should be sufficient for a quick & dirty OC anyway - assuming you want to push beyond 4GHz.

Thanks Barty, I appreciate your reply. This CPU seems to be running at 3.7 with 4.0 being it's safe topend I guess.

I'll try the high performance in Windows, as for the manual mode in AI Overclock, when I tried just basic adjustments to get it to 4.0 it essentially reboots and resets back to 3.7

I'll take another stab at it. Cheers!
