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.
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.
