The quickest, not always right answer would be: raise core voltage. Also you might want to read this or other TL,DR oc guides.

As a side note, the Phenom 9650 wasn't a good overclocker......
Hell, I think I still have a 9850 or 9950 in my basement somewhere.....lol

That being said.....


But this is probably the best guide for ya at this point : https://www.overclockers.com/step-guide-overclock-amd-phenom/
You can also check this out even though it's for Phenom II, it's probably still relevant : https://www.overclock.net/threads/phenom-ii-overclocking-guide.525113/
