How far do you think i can OC 3800+x2?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So I have the AMD Athalon 3800+ x2 Dual core processor. And I just ordered the Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme with a 120mm fan. And was wondering how far do you think I will be able to OC my CPU..

Also do you have a good OC guide that I can use as reference? I'm looking for something detailed..

Heres my specs if they matter

AMD 3800+ X2 Dual core with Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme
700wat PSU
2gig DDR400
8800GTS Superclocked

Well it would also help if you filled out your system specs, and also give us your mobo as well. then we could help you futher, But im going to give an educated guess and say that you will probably top out at a round 2.7-2.8ghz

Delphi is right, that's the average oc but it's going to depend on what is powering your overclock.

ok you have a awsome mobo for ocing there, but it is more for the advanced oc'er, but you should be able to oc that 3800+ pretty high. 2.7ghz should be reachable with that board.

Ill find the faq to help you out with ocing.

OK heres a faq to help

http://www.overclock.net/faqs/31782-...pu-memory.html

Programs that would be usefull for you would be speed fan/ core temp to monitor your cpu's heat, and orthos or prime 95 to stress the computer for stability.

A word of caution: You will not be able to use the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme on a S939 motherboard out of the box. Thermalright does not include the proper retaining mechanism to use on a Socket 939 motherboard.

You'll need to get a K8 Bolt-Thru Kit from somewhere.

Buy it here.

Hope this helps!
