  1. Nobody knows, every CPU is different.

    I have two AMD Phenom II Quad core computers (quite old now). Identical, both fully overclocked. One maxxes out at 4GHz, the other at 3.45GHz
  2. Probably up to a stock 8350.

    So a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO will be able to handle 4.5 ghz?
  4. If you get a decent one they can , every CPU is different , some overclock well , some not so good.
  5. To have some initial look at OC potential, look at Stepping number of the processor, generally if it's 0 it would be better OCer. Next step, Engineering Sample, those are best.
  6. I have fx8320 and hyper 212 cooler. I was able to overclock using bios settings my cpu to 4.5Ghz. I tried giving it more ummp, 4.6Ghz but it crashed. Now. Im back to 4.4Ghz, i think its stable. Sometimes I put it back to 4.5Ghz for the heck of it but honestly 4.4-4.5ghz? no such effect. And honestly even from stock speed of 3.5 (3.7?)Ghz to 4.4/4.5Ghz I did not see any improvement in my games. Its still the same FPS counter man! same. no 1-2-3 FPS improvement whatsover. Yeah if you load GPU_z or whatever tools to check cpu clock, its says 4.4Ghz this or 4.5Ghz that but real world effect as in you can feel the overclock? NO BIG NO. I honestly think this overclock is just a marketing ploy. A PLACEBO Effect if you ask me. The only benefit of this master cooler hyper evo is that my CPU is so silent now when i play. I remember the stock fan from AMD, what a loud fan like roaring like a jet engine during my gaming.
  7. That's gross misconception that OCing or even changing to much more powerful CPU will give you a great boost in all of the games but only in case CPU is grossly bottlenecking GPU and game is CPUcentric. In some cases an i3 can perform just as well as an i7 of four times or more it's computing power. Granted, hundred or two MHz is not going to do much good or bad.
