Default Re: Overclocking My AMD 64 X2 3600+ 2.0GHz Manchester

The highest it liked to run stable was 2.4. I kept the voltage near stock though. I'm not a fan of cranking voltage.

My new 3800x2 in my HTPC is a Toledo. It does 2.4 at default voltage. I haven't tried any higher as there is no need.
Yes, evidently the Socket 939 X2 3600+ chips are pretty rare. They have a smaller L2 cache than their more common brother the Socket AM2 version. So far, 2.7GHz seems to be doing alright. Just have to wait and see. Most common overclock for this chip seems to be 2.6GHz.

AMD FX-8320 Vishera 8-Core 3.5GHz (4.0GHz Turbo)
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4x4GB)
EVGA SuperClocked GeForce GTX 760 2GB w/ EVGA ACX Cooler
MSI GTX 460 (Dedicated PhysX)
