X2 5000+ Wont budge - 46009+ will though?
Aug 17, 2010, 6:25 PM
I had an AMD X2 4600 that I managed to clock from 2.4Ghz to 2.8Ghz.
I got hold of an X2 5000 processor, and using the same simple overclocking techniques, wont overclock at all.
My motherboard can only support up to an X2 5000...so is this why? Will it not overclock because the Motherboard has reached its 'cap'?
Or (my other theory) - is the chip actually overclocking but the Motherboard (CPU-Z) just isn't recognising it? I.e. it's actually going faster but it wont say it in CPU-Z?

For some reason, I had to clear the BIOS (CMOS removal). After this, it let me in - 3Ghz from my X2 5000+ Yeah!!!
