stop overclocking in windows and overclock in bios. It the ONLY WAY to overclock right.

From my expeirence its best to overclock with the bios. for your problem. it locked up because it got to a clock speed it couldnt handle anymore. if you reboot after that happens and go into it again it will tell you what the fastest bus speed was before it locked up. and then you can go into the bios and use that figure as a rough starting point for the overclock

Hi hardcoreatigamer

You haven't listed your motherboard? That's the main thing you need to list to know how well and if AMD OverDrive will work with your processor.

However, you should try BIOS overclocking first to learn your processor/motherboard/memory limits. There is no way around this.

If you want to play about with AutoClock, place 1.4v on your processor first, 1.35v on your northbridge, make sure your RAM are set to loose timings so they can do 1000 5-5-5-15-30 easily stable and then hit the AutoClock button and let it work. Keep watching it, and watch where it freezes/gets stuck.

The next time you start up, open it up and it will tell you what your maximum succesful overclock was so you can copy those settings and try them in BIOS or using AOD manually and see if they work stable.

Don't have anything else running in the background NOR have any monitoring tool open (apart from Task Manager). You can see the temperatures inside AOD by a simple click.
