athlon ii x2 245 overclock once again NEED HELP

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello, I am going to purchase a coolermaster hyper 212 for my cpu hoping that it will remove the terible bottleneck after I overclock my cpu to 3.7-4ghz.
1) will this be safe
2) will it speed up my games?
3) is it a good investment?

Thanks in advance.

Get the Corsair A50 instead. Hyper 212+ is about $37 counting shipping. The Corsair A50 is $32 (free shipping), $22 after rebate. Much cheaper, and should be equal or better in performance.

I think the 245 is a C2 revision only, so it won't reach 3.7-4Ghz. It may speed up your games, but I highly doubt that you are bottlenecking a 9800GT right now. Athlon II is slightly slower than Core 2 Duo (due to less L2 cache/core) but it is neck-and-neck to the Pentium Dual Core (Core architecture).

I received your PM and apparently you can reach 4.3Ghz with your x2; perhaps you have a C3 revision processor, that is excellent. A better cooler would be worth it if you have no need for the L3 cache (which improves game framerates usually) and more than 2 cores.
