4600+ to a 5000+...same overclock?

Hi

I have managed to overclock my AMD X2 4600+ from 2.4Ghz to 2.8Ghz...stable so far (1 week of gaming and benchmarking) aslthough I had to slow my RAM down to do it.

I'm getting hold of a 5000+ processor in a few days (2.6Ghz stock).

Will I be able to get a similar overclock i.e. and extra 400 Mhz, out of this processor too? or does it not work like that?

Both are the 'Windsor' type

Cheers

  1. It real doesn't work that way, every component has it's own personality. That being said, the 5000 BE should be a better OC'er than the 4600, so @3.0 or a little more isn't out of reach.
  2. Ok thanks Unclefester, I'll post back with the result once I recieve the CPU
  3. I hope your not paying for it. The difference in performance wouldn't be worth it.
  4. I'm buying a 5000, and selling my 4600...gonna lose about £4 overall so I thought 'why not'
