I'm not sure but I don't think you'll see a performance gain since it's the same Phenom II but just at a lower clock speed and one core disabled, enabling and overclocking it should technically make it pretty much the same CPU, but that's just what I think.

I'm loving mine where it is.
The 3 cores are more then enough (for now) , but the 7.5MB of total cache really makes this CPU excel in the area I got it for... games!

Stick with that you have. If you want more then wait for X6.
