    Well if you have good air cooling I see no reason why you can't go up to 1.525v, just keep an eye on your temps.

    *nods* well Intel rule the roost on that one, so if you're finding yourself limited by the performance below 2.8 you might want to consider switching, but otherwise I'd have thought you'd be better off with a lower overclock to have better thermal/power figures and better stability.

    seeing as the fx 60 is around £500 or more which runs at 2.6ghz, 2.8 is very good for a budget dual core chip well done

    My 4600+ is currently at 2.8. It's a good speed for an air cooled athlon. I'm going to try and get to 3.0 or beyond tomorrow when my new PSU arrives.

    the pretty program is what come with my motherboard


    myn is also on air, so a 3800 that does near a 4600 speeds is brilliant in my eyes.
