Re: How far can an Athlon x2 4800+ usually go?
I had a X2 4400+ that did 2.84GHz on air. Awhile back I saw quite a few folks have luck with later revisions of the X2 3800s, getting many to 3.0GHz on air.
I'd be careful with some of the AM2 X2s. I mean do not get the "low voltage" ones, they are notorious for mediocre OCs.
