Re: How far can an Athlon x2 4800+ usually go?
Overclocking potential also depends on your ram, motherboard, psu.
You can put a cpu into one computer and only get 200mhz overclock. Put the exact same cpu into another computer and get 500mhz overclock easy.
As far as what is safe for that cpu I wouldn't know.
