I would swap. The 4000's never clocked like the 3700's did. CABGE is the worst stepping around. The KAB1E should be good for 3ghz with some tweaking.

i just did, booted it up at 2.86 and it worked (seeing as my old 4000 hit max, i was happy!), atm its running a bit hot (44 degrees, but then this is crap water cooling!

Now testing this overclock - is it any good?

God damn i hope this is stable!

RAM is running understressed atm, im probably gonna tighten the timings and go 1t!
