Will a GA-MA78G-DS3H (rev 1) OC a Phenom II


Jul 10, 2008
I was thinking about upgrading my CPU (x2 3800) to a new Phenom II but wanted to know if you think my motherboard could overclock very far. It is the old revision so it barely even supports the new 125W phenom II. It doesn't even support the old 125 W phenoms. I don't want to blow up my motherboard. I have never OC'd. Also I can't decide between the 940 or the 920 but was leaning towards the 920 since it is cheaper and I am guessing my motherboard isn't that great at OC so why get a CPU made for OC if I am held back by my motherboard. I have already flashed the bios to the newest F6 for support of the new cpu.

Here is my hardware

Any suggestions, thanks in advance
