ok so heres the deal i have an asus m2n68-cm board with a amd 64 x2 5600 2.9ghz dual core cpu with 8gb of ddr2 kingston ram.i already checked and my board does support the 1055t x6 processor with a bios update.my question is would i be able to get the phenom x6 to 4ghz with this board and ram?if not how high would i be able to get it?what settings would i need to use? im new to overclocking but not with computers. also buying new ram or board is not an option this is meant to be a bang for the buck upgrade so ur help and wisdom is apreciated

No one can tell you how much overclock you can get you need to try it. If you don't know you will need a good cooler to have a chance at 4GHz

yes it does support it.i was thinking of getting a corsair hydro h50 cooler.i figured if i can overclock this 1055t over 3.5ghz+ i could save some money instead of buying the phenom 1090t.wat u guys think?

Yes same price :
1055T 3.5Ghz is still default with OC 1055T $197 + WC H50 $100
1090BE 3.6 Ghz turbocore.. still default $297
in this situation 1055T can OC 4ghz above with WCH50
1090 just default with 3.2 used Stock Cooling
i prefer for 1055T OC for dailly use (any job)) not Brenchmark
if u want brechmark buy 1090BE + WC H70 / or better
