my uncle can clock his to 2.5 using a 939.
I want to know if i can clock it to 2.7 with CNPS9500 AM2 and Asus MOBO, do you think it possible with a fan without getting too much heat?
and im using a lian-li 60plussII case.

Possible, but you'll have to start feeding it some extra voltage.

Yeah i dont think i can get that high with a fan/heatsink. I think 2.6-2.7 is max with the heat that is still around
thx though

As long as you keep the load temps under 50c you should be fine to push the voltages a little. On straight water I could get 2850 (same volts) at that load temp. so with a good chip quality air or water should do fine.
