Well I guess you have never RMA'ed anything to newegg as they don't even ask why you want to return it!

I am under the firm belief that if you cant get a unlocked phenom II to hit 4ghz you are a dumbass noob when it comes to AMD overclocking, and should stick to your INTELL chips.
I am sure some of the overclock problems someone might have is due to motherboard and memory also. I didn't have a problem getting mine to 4.1ghz in a matter of minutes. I think it really comes down to the combo of the hardware.

+1 This

My 555BE won't get above 3.96GHz unlocked to x4 without getting super high temps.

But, I have a cheap 120MM air cooler on it. I might be able to go higher with liquid cooling or a noctua NH-D14.

Sprower - FX-6100 - CHVF

Just a little multi/vcore bump there.
I tried unlocking extra cores right away with no success unfortunately. It's been fun so far. It's definitely an easy overclocker all around and much much snappier with multiple apps running than my old C2 965.

AMD FX-6100 Zambezi 3.3GHz 6MB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache Socket AM3+ 95W Six-Core Desktop Processor FD6100WMGUSBX

Just thought I'd post that for anyone viewing this thread looking at FX processors.
Not much of a deal. I got mine for the same price with next day shipping from TigerD.

I would have RMAd it... because if you cant so much as hit the 4ghz mark then the die is a piece of ****... that will ultimatly result in having a lower life expectancy at clock for clock with a chip that can hit 4ghz

The point is this. There are no guarantees when it comes to overclocking and (in the long run) when people return perfectly working hardware you end up costing the consumer money.

"In the long run" the chips get cheaper so this point is not valid
