Can this cpu (AMD Sempron 2600+ ) be overclocked from 1.6 ghz to about 2 ghz or so on stock cooling. My temps are 52c idle

With those temps no; however those temps are much too high for a Sempron 2600. I had a 2800 and OCed it to 2.8GHz, so the CPU can do it, provided you offer decent cooling.

Yes, You shouldnt need a voltage increase for anything for that overclock. Voltage is the only thing that really increases heat.


Nearly every CPU now days can oveclock 400mhz just fine, The only CPU I met to be difficult was the Phenom 9600 which I got 3ghz with finaly. The X2 6000+ Wouldnt go past 3.3ghz no matter what i did.

After the 6000+ I went to intel

The motherboard is a Asrock K8 Upgrade NF3. I have an heatsink from a freezer 7 pro but i guess its not compatable with this board. I am going to use ocz freeze on it and i found a way to have two fans blowing on the heat sink.

Yeah you could overclock it once you get the temps down

ASRock boards have a poor reputation when it comes to overclocking but 1.6-> 2.0 should be ok
(heck, it might be able to go higher than that even)
