I'm a noob when it comes to overclocking but I know that the 9950 can be overclocked more than 3.0ghz ; currently only running at 2.6ghz

I just need some pointers on what to change in bios because I can't use Overdrive.

thx!

The 9950BE isn't the easiest to overclock, which I say from experience sadly. Granted, I didn't up the voltage a ton. I'd shoot for 2.8GHz/2.9GHz and if that runs fine in your burn-in tests, maybe 3.0. I don't trust the 9950BE as far as I can throw it. Which, depending on packaging, could be a decent ways.
