Overclocking Guide?

Recommended Posts

I have a AMD Phenom II X2 555 processor and recently installed FSX. I get very good frames with sliders medium to high and all the default aircraft. I recently bought my first FSX add-on the Carenado caravan and my fps dropped into the 18-20 range. I would like to learn how to overclock my cpu and have never done it. I know I need to upgrade a cooler but anyone have any good guides on how to overclock this processor?

Glad you liked it  :smile:I find that looking for guides for a family of processors works. In my case I used a generic Core i3/i5/i7 guide. The principles are largely the same. And then if you can't find any good numbers for your particular processor, publish yours and be the first!
