Max CPU Speed reading

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Using 3DMark05 System specs there is a reading saying that my 3.0Ghz has a max clock of 3.6Ghz. Is this reliable? Would i be able to go above it (or near it without frying the cpu).

You can go as high as your components will take you. Cooling and motherboard are usually the biggest factor.

so is any of this other info i'm reading off the specs (other than the video card stuff) noteworthy?
i've already noticed that its saying i'm running sdram when i know for a fact that i have ddr2 ram in the case (i paid for it and installed it and have the box and receipt it came in).

SDRAM is short for synchronous dynamic RAM, and DDR2 is a type of SDRAM. The only way to truly find the maximum overclock for your system is to go ahead and overclock it. It's sometimes a long, tedious process to get things flying and stable, but it's very worthwhile. I'm sure the 3.6 GHz just came from a database, possibly of just CPUs or maybe including other system components as well.

And you can even run it Asynchronous from the system clock
