How much can i overclock my AMD Athlon 64 3800+ Orleans 2.4GHz? I want it to run stable and at low temps. I got a very good cooler and my motherboard is very good to OC. Also what is better the Orleans or Lime 3800.

Only way to know for sure is to try it bro. Just drop your HT multiplier and your RAM divider, and up the core clock speed. I'd see how far you can push it at default vcore first though. Not sure of your board, but you should probably make sure your buses are locked at 33/66(100) first though.

"all chips are the same"


what does this mean - core 2 6300 and e6400 only differ by the multiplier

sweet spot is 2.8 ghz to 3.4ghz


with amd 2.6ghz - 3.0 ghz is the sweet spot.

a qx6700 is 1330fsb 10x 3.325ghz at 1335 the temps go way up.


run a stablity test and a temp program on the desk top or check temps in the bios - raise the fsb, multiplier with auto features off, until the temps go up

IF you are lucky, you'll be able to hit 2.8-2.9 or even 3.0GHz. The point is that with today's prices (I mean, $65 for a X2 3600+) and your good cooler you mention, you have to question yourself if you should go dual core.
