    Wow, good luck trying to even boot up the PC witha 350wt PSUwith a ATI/Phenom...I recommend at least... 550 or your PC will be very poor performance.why would you even Overclock it with a 350PSU?

    I have an AMD 9950 BLK ED processor, it was out of the box 2.6 ghz. I installed the supplied heatsink, and oced to 3.0ghz, with little temp. difference, but also i agree with other answers, 350w is just not enough, this processor run 140w just at factory clock, i would recommend at least 500w. And not sure what you would want to overclock for, this processor can easily keep up with an hd 2600, if you had a pair of them then maybe overclock. My system, has 2 9800 gt 1GB in SLI, and i am back down to factory clock on my processor, and it seems to keep up with the cards no problem. It just depends on what you are using your computer for. I have a friend that has the 9950 also, liquid cooled to 3.8 ghz, he said thats the max he can go without crashes, so this processor is factory clocked to about 2/3s its potenial, but just remember keep it cool, and it wants lots of power! also make sure if you do upgrade psu, get one with dual 12v rails!

    Hi...As per my knowledge you can change the frequency mulitplier via bios because it's a BE.Do you know if yours is the 125w version or 140w?
    The 125w version will do 3ghz on near stock voltage, that's a multiplier of 15.You may need to change the over clock settings to manual to make adjustments.
