That's a decent OC, you have to remember, this thing comes stock at 3Ghz, so, while they will OC, anything you get out of it...is really just bonus, since it's already higher than most AMD processors will ever go.

That being said, 3300Mhz is a decent OC, depends on steppings really, some get it to 3.3ghz without too much trouble, on stock cooling and stock voltage, some get it there with bumped volts. I'm at 3.36 @ 1.5v because i wanted stability, and pumping some more volts was the only way to get there.

Also, I'm running DDR2-667, so I don't have near the OC headroom as those with DDR2-800, and I'm only running a TForce 550...so I'm working with budget components, with a albeit good processor.

The reason the super pi time was hurting was because, like I just mentioned, I'm only running DDR2-667, so OC'd the RAM was probably ~ 750, good OC for RAM, just not much to do, when stock DDR2-800 chips would do me much better.

yes 3.3 is very decent for the AMD x2's. all the lower models top out ~3.0 which is your stock. if you would like faster and higher overclocks, the intels are going up to ~3.6 on air.
