any recommendation on AM2 cpu for ocing?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
so far, i only found this and thought it would be a good deal: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103242

is this cpu any good for ocing? i did a search on OCN, one person said he got it from 2.8 to 3.25(on air), which I don't think it's that big of an increment. only .45 increase

there is a post for 4400+ from 2.2 to 3.04(with CNPS9700 NT). .84 ghz increase!

btw, i'm taking about ocing on air. I just ordered a Zalman CNPS9700 NT.

all comments are welcome. if you found a good price for the cpu, please link me. thank you

so far, these are the prices i found
4400+ (2.3ghz/ oem)$63.74.
5000+ BE (2.6ghz/ retail)$93.74
5400 (2.8ghz/ OEM)89.01

any other input guys?

i read some threads on the the 5000 be saying that it wasn't that good b/c of heating issue?

my friend, the 5000 is a 65 watt CPU... What heating issue? There's a reason people can get over 3GHz on it with stock cooling.... I'd get it cuz it's pretty cheap

why i think the 5000 is better for you is because of 3 reason
1. the price is good with that profromance!
2. is easy to overclock with the muti unlocked ( you could just increase the muti and keep other setting as it is.)
3. if you are good with the overclock with the muti unlocked you could find prefect setting for fsb and muti easiler.

i have one of that be4 and i get up to 3.3 with no problem! no heat issue is not for everyone only a few people have it and thats may be because of how they install the heatsink.

I ran that cpu in my old Dell (bios locked)
Pretty fast
Look at it this way, you get a garanteed 2.8 with it.

Go for a "Black Edition" or BE processor. They have the unlocked multiplier which will allow for higher clocking.
