As you probably know, each individual cpu is different. There are also other limitations (motherboard for example).

However, you can check this link. I don't think it's been updated recently though.

I have an Opteron 175 on an Asus A8R-MVP that I can not get over 2.7GHz stable using water cooling and relaxed timings.
I soon will upgrade mobo to the A8R32-MVP in hopes of getting alitte further.

There is no clear range. Some may OC higher other lower. Of course, the mobo counts a lot,but luck is another important factor.
However most Opties will break the 2.5 ghz barier that is more than enough for a dual core CPU.

How far can they generally be overclocked using stock cooling, assuming you have a case with excellent airflow?

Stable you should be able to hit 2.5GHz, and if lucky, 2.6GHz...

Well i managed to get into windows @ 2.845 for quick test to find max bootable clock

but have only tested it to 2.7 as yet using super pi 32m and a 4 hour strech on CSS
Indle temps are 35
load temps are 45



super pi 32 at 29.26s

Yes, mine went up close to 2850 using an auto overclocking utility, but I could not hit that speed when setting it in BIOS, and around 2.6GHz was the top semi stable speed I reached.

yeah max setting in the bios is 258 @ muti of 11 2.835 effective and this is on the Asus A8N-Sli premium mobo the only drawback with this board is its max cpv volts is 1.55 on bios
where as in ai booster i can get 1.6 but have'nt needed to go beyond 1.48.75 ive found it to rock at 2.750 running all my benchtests so i think i keep it at that for now

getting a nice boost over the single opty 146 cabye 540

just to let you know this opty is the 175 ccbwe 0601

due to the late week i was'nt expecting such a reasonable clock

anyways happy days :D
