How would I go about OCing this? I have a cpu fan and I monitor my temps constantly. I am running crysis 3/witcher 2 and would love to get about 10 fps more. Hoping if I OC my cpu a bit it will help. First time OC anything though so talk slow please

Thanks for the link. I have been looking through that exact one and a few others for awhile. I am just a little too cautious when its my first time doing something and specially when I can't afford a new cpu >_<

Yes just don't go over 1.5 and make you monitor your temps very closely during stress testing. I would also recommend against using presets and use the method described. You can get much better and higher stable oc that way. Here is another very useful link that will describe voltages and more http://www.techreaction.net/2009/05/28/phenom-ii-am3-overclocking-essentials/
