Trying to dial-in a stable O/C for my Phenom II 940 Black Edition. I believe I've found a sweat spot around the 3.6 GHZ mark. Question is, does it matter whether I select an even number or odd number CPU multiplier. Seem to recall reading something about odd number multiplier being less desirable...but I could have been drinking beer that night.

Any thoughts?

Each .5 change equals a 100mhz leap in clock speed example:19.5=3.9ghzs and so forth.Just miltiple times 2 for clock speed.
btw I have never heard of odd multiplers affecting system performance
