FX-8350 Hyper212Evo Overclocking


I am looking to overclock my CPU. I don't know where to start; I've researched for a good 3 hours and haven't found any resources to complete my request so I am reaching out to you. I am unable to overclock using BIOS because I knocked out my CMOS battery while building it, so any BIOS changes will be ineffective. I am looking to overclock using AMD Overdrive.

The main issue I have is I don't know how much voltage and the other settings to change while overclocking to 4.4GHZ/4.5GHZ (I've found many people recommend those speeds). When I set the speed to 4.4GHZ I just estimate the voltage and it crashes. This is most likely because I am missing a piece to the puzzle - a setting or some sort I am not changing.

Could you guys tell me some numbers for the speed (GHZ), voltage and any other settings found in AMD Overdrive?

Computer Specifications:
CPU - FX 8350 @ 4.0GHZ
CPU Cooler - Hyper 212 Evo
MOBO - Asus m5a97 2.0
GPU - GTX 770
Storage - SSD @ HDD (Can't find specific brands)
Case - Define r4

I hope this adequately explains my problem. Any help is appreciated, and feel free to ask for more information if needed.

  1. well to start you need that battery
  2. I've seen others overclock without BIOS and I know it is possible, though not recommended to do it with software. So I do not NEED the battery, but I would like some help overclocking with AMD Overdrive. Could I have some advice considering overclocking via BIOS is not possible?
  3. I want to help but I know you will end up with issues without the battery... sorry
  4. Ok, thanks. I will wait out for others, I'm sure it can be done safely. Any others willing to share their input?

    If I was using BIOS in this senario, what would you reccomend for each setting I would have to change?
