First gen phenoms are horrible overclockers. At most I would think is you will hit 3.3Ghz.

Good luck with hitting 4GHz, the old Phenoms don't overclock past 3.2 easily at all.

Yeah...They don't OC well.
Not every chip hits 4Ghz.

I don't think any Phenom 9950 has ever been reported to hit 4.0Ghz, many Phenom processors were unable to overclock past 3.0Ghz. 3.2Ghz was considered a high overclock for Phenom. lol

Until it passes atleast 10-20hrs of prime 95 that thing is not stable in my book.

Not to mention the voltage just to reach 3.5Ghz is enough to kill the chip.

There's a reason they called it a SUICIDE screen.
