[Overclocking] AMD Sempron 2600+ Box

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello, I'm new to this forum. I never overclocked anything on my PC before. I would like to know am I able to OC my AMD Sempron 2600+ Box? It works on 1.60GHz at the moment. And I'm not sure am I able to OC it to 1.80-2GHz My system spec is:

Motherboard: Asus K8U-X
GPU: GeForce 6200 128MB
Memory: 2GB 800MHz(I think) Kingston

Yeah, my PC build is ancient I bought it 4 years ago.

P.S Is there any overclocking tutorial for this CPU? Thanks.

If you water cool it, You could get more than 3.0GHz out of it, but the CPU would probably last for a year, maybe a little more than that if you got it to that clock

I don't think that my PC is worth water cooling. Could you recommend me which air cooling should I use?

Youll probably be ram limited before temp limited with WC.

You could try out the Corsair H50, or the Coolermaster V8 maybe? They both should give you plenty of headroom with the tempature's if your going to overclock
