There is a lot of room to improve in, but are you willing to go past stock voltages, unlocking possible cores, buying aftermarket coolers (at least for the CPU), or would you rather keep things all stock?

Thanx for the response, kokin.
Being as I am layed off at the moment it was a bit of a stretch to go this far.
Without purchasing a better video card, which I plan to do when I return to work, or another cooler, same deal, I think I am about as far as I can go.
I wasnt able to unlock the additional cores.
It runs pretty friggin good with the 3.3 ghz using the multiplier only.
I wouldnt want to go any further on the stock cooler.
I was hoping I could squeeze a little more out of the graphics card and was wondering what others with the same hardware may have done to achieve with it.

Basically, yeah, you need a better GPU. You are getting all you are going to out of that 4600. It is a weak gaming card.
