Im afraid it happens to the best of us my first atempt to overclock thru bios was an epic fail my second atempt to overclock was an success.

My Vcore is at 1.35V
my cpu is Amd phenom X2 7750 non BE clocked from default 2.70 to a whopping 3.053Ghz.

Upgrade to a Phenom II. 3GHz is the stock speed for the 940BE and 3.8GHz is easily achievable. 4GHz and higher takes more tweaking, more luck, and usually better cooling.

At least get an Athlon II. Anything besides the original Phenom CPU architecture (or older) is better. - AMD Phenom II X4 940 Deneb 3.0GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM2+ 125W Quad-Core Black Edition Processor - Processors - Desktops $169.99 - AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition Callisto 3.1GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 80W Dual-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops $102.00 - AMD Athlon II X2 250 Regor 3.0GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM3 65W Dual-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops $76.00

The Phenom II BEs are what I would recommend for OCing as they can OC much more easily and generally don't require the motherboard to be as stable at high speeds.

My motherboard is a GIGABYTE GA-MA790FXT-UD5P. It supports AMD's newer socket AM3 processors only.

As for OCing, all speeds are determined by the respective multiplier in relation to the motherboard's baseline FSB speed. (default 200MHz) There are separate multipliers for CPU, RAM, PCIe, and HT (Hyper Transport). So yeah, completely asynchronous system operation is possible; in fact it's normal.
