4600+ to a 5000+...same overclock? Tags: CPUs Overclocking Processors Last response: August 14, 2010 7:03 PM in Overclocking Share mrsav25 August 12, 2010 10:09:29 PM 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 More about : 4600 5000 overclock | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Register or log in to remove unclefester CPUs Expert August 13, 2010 3:07:58 AM 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. | Report abuse mrsav25 August 14, 2010 9:57:47 AM Ok thanks Unclefester, I'll post back with the result once I recieve the CPU | Report abuse 4745454b CPUs Master Overclocking Expert August 14, 2010 10:27:00 AM I hope your not paying for it.
