Is that a Black Edition Athlon cpu? If not I don't think you can overclock it. Also I wonder if you would be better off just using the HD4250 integrated gpu in your mobo instead of using the 8500GT? I have an 880GZ board from Biostar but I never actually tried those graphics because my discrete card is much better, but for you the integrated gpu might be better.

dont do that lol 8500gt all the way Smile

onboard graphics are for display only really, and it misses the shaders and memory to actualy achieve any perfomance at all.

It's not a recent intel, you don't need a black edition to overclock it.

Do you know what are you talking about? Not to be rude...but if overclock is done knowing what to do and what to check it's not dangerous. It's enough not to overcome certain tresholdes like temperature or voltage to be sure that the chip will be fine...

You can only overclock a CPU of your BIOS supports it. Well they're other programs you can use for OC'ing but for safety of your CPU its not worth it to use them.

Using software for OC is never the right way to go, even with unlocked CPUs, and I think that only preassembled PCs can have the OC locked in the bios. Retail motherboards have always the possibility of OC (anyway it's enough to check in the web pages of the producer to be sure).
