3800+Venice + Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe + Artic Freezer 64 Pro

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
a friend offered me this

Asus A8N-SLI DELUXE skt939
AMD Athlon 64 3800+ Venice (S939, 2,4GHz, 512KB, TRAY)
Arctic Freezer 64 Pro CPU Cooler skt 754,939,940

for 130€ would this be good for overclocking and would it blow away my current P4 515 2.93GHz + Asus P5VDC-X + Gigabyte G-Power Pro
and should i keep the cooler or sell it ? i can use it for the AMD i still have the clips but he offered me 20 euros for it so what do u think would be the best cooling solution the Gigabyte G-Power Pro or Arctic Freezer 64 Pro ?

I use that cooler and it is fine! Can handle my overclock upto 2.9ghz. On the rest its a nice set up and would be an upgrade to your rig. If you are looking into overclocking that cpu is not as good as the 3700 sandys but nonetheless it will still overclock pretty well.

Should help to reduce the bottleneck on your gpu.

The Arctic Freezer is an excellent cooler and that's a great deal. Go for it!
