he tried to make a lime with a bag of lemons...and it just isnt powerful enough to make a clock operate....lol
I get this, but when I get stuff free I just kind of tried to make due with what was at hand. I was given the G41 Mobo from a system I put together months ago, I wanted to see what the intel world was about. I was pleasantly surprised by my laptop with the I7 and thought surely I would have decent results with the build. When I found a good deal on the processor I took it. Well.. Thanks for the kind insults I guess.

Not much help from anybody here. I would say do a little more research. AMD and Intel have there good and bad qualities. The right hardware can make or break an overclock.

AMD processors dont get hot as they once did,in fact they run cooler than most Intel's.
