My 4600 stock is 2.4 Ghz, Right now i OC to 2.54 i can OC more after my 2nd Asus Mobo arrives (1st one DOA)<br />
<br />
Anyways, If I OC my 4600 to 2.8Ghz, Would it be the same speed and performance as a Stock fx-62 (2.8 ghz)<br />
<br />
Thank you for reading/posting.

</div>No, the fx-62 has 2mb l2 cache, your 4600 only has 1mb l2 cache.

Ouch, i dont even think my Processor would be stable @ 2.8 ghz, Oc'ing to 3.0 would really fry my processor unless i liq cool it, but there's no good LIQ cooling for my AM2 processor

yeah you should of really looked into the cache of your processor, you really only have 512kb.

how hot is it running at 2.8ghz? What vcore do you need to hit that.....if its less than 1.5 I dont see why you can't run it there with zalman 9500 and some as5. Myx2 4800 caps at 3.14ghz and its rated at same stock speed as +4600. I think the xtra L2 cache helps in oc'in some more but I think you should def be able to hit 2.8.

The L2 cache doesn't put you over....BS<br />
myself and my brethren have done it with single cores at 512...<br />
The 1mb cache is just for running extra processes...not aiding the OC.

Well the x4000 I had with 2mb cache also did 2.8 with stock vcore and this x4800 chip is only better. So in my experience the xtra lvl 2 cache helps as I see most AM2 x3800(same speed as 4000) capping ~2.7. Don't have any idea why like you said, its for running xtra processes, but both of my 2mb L2 cache chips have oc'ed better than the norm I've seen with other chips at the same speed with 1mb L2 cache.

So, i'm confused now, so how much cache matter or not?

Look at the difference between a 3700+ and a venice 3500+.<br><br>
At stock speeds, they perform almost exactly the same in all reviews I've seen. The sandy overclocks further, but that is because it is a different core entirely. The size of the L2 cache means nothing to OC'ing.

The raw speed is not dependant on the cache. The overall productivity dependant on the CPU load is relative to cache.
