Overclocking The Phenom II

Overclocking the new Phenom II CPUs requires a new overclocking technique to obtain a high overclock.

Thanks to AMD, placing the memory controller on the CPU allows faster interaction with memory. However this complicates CPU stability when overclocking. Luckily you have me to help make the complicated simple.
