    best overclocking AMD X2 939 deal?

    at the moment, I have a 939 X2 somewhere around 2.2 GHz, I should imagine by now there is an option that will get me up to about 2.8 Ghz on a budget, what should I buy?

    The rest is really up to the limit of your processor..

    2.8Ghz is not impossible really, but don't hold your breath as some will only do decent 2.5ish unless you go WC..

    get a Opty 170 for arround £135 and watch the mother go especially if you water cool assuming you have a motherboard capable and stable enough.

    Second the SLi-D. 2.8 is a long shot. It will take days of kicking and screaming to get it there (and a monster cooler). If thhe chip can even handle it.

    2.6 is a much more reasonable target. Pretty easy to achieve.
