Hey Guys

i just bought s temporary CPU until i get enough cash to buy my Dual Core Opteron, i picked it up off ebay for $173 AUD INC postage (approx $125 USD) This cpu's codes are as follows:

ADA3000DIK4BI 3000+ 64BIT, 512K D0 STEPPING SOCKET 939



As far as i could find it was a whinny core, which doesn't bother me, coz as i said it is a temporary cpu, i just wanted to buy something for under $180.

Now what i want to know is is this cpu any good for overclocking?

I've bought a Zalman 7700Cu to slap onto it... it should all be arriving with my DFI LanParty SLI-DR Expert this friday.

I'm buying new ram to overclock this with so don't worry about that kind of stuff (my current is just generic DDR400 sig has new stuff)

i know my PSU can cope with overclocking. I bought it so it could

Yeah that's about what i want, with my dual core opteron i want to get around the same speeds... maybe a little more, i'll have water cooling then though...
