I have a 2.7ghz tri-core RANA and was wondering if I could get it from 2.7ghz to 3ghz and have it run fairly cool (like not overheating) on the stock cooler? Also should I use my bios to overclock it?

tell you right away.. RANA is a nice chip but not overclocking friendly, BUT to go to 3 GHZ is not too much.. so try it out to 2.9 GHZ and see how the heat is running if it is the way you want it.. 0.1 GHZ more will not perform alot more.. than 2.9 Ghz

It isn't a big difference, you're right.. but if you really want to see improvements, it's not going to be in games as they are not very CPU dependent. (Although GTA IV is more CPU dependent than average) Photoshop, editing/converting, or a similar productivity application would see a better benefit.

If you can unlock your fourth core, it would be more beneficial than simply having an overclocked tri-core, even if it doesn't OC as high as a quad-core.

I cannot unlock it though, the 4th core is too defective.

Your x3 can do 3.6Ghz if you wanted to, not sure why orbital says it not an OC friendly CPU. On the other hand with stock cooling you will be limited to about 3.3Ghz give or take...

well all AMD are not an OC'ing friendly.. yes you can overclock from 3.0 to 3.4 where intel can go from 2.6 to 4.0

3.0 to 3.4 only? you must not know what you are doing, I have an x4 940 in one of my backup rigs and it is currently clocked at 4Ghz. The 1090T is clocked at 3.2Ghz and I have seen over 4.5Ghz, my CPU is clocked at 3.1Ghz and it can do 4.1Ghz (all of these that I mentioned are AMD chips).

The latest Intels CPU's do clock very well but they also cost more, it all comes down to how much you want to spend.
