So I got myself a nice shiny new Phenom II X4 965BE a few weeks back.
I have read online that you can easily OC this CPU to about 3.8 - 4.0 Ghz without any voltage changes, which is interesting. What im stuck with though, is that I don't need to OC, with the combination of my video card.
Problem; I love OCing. You could say that I NEED to OC.
What im wondering about though, is whether it will give me noticeable performance gain, and what it's effect on it's lifetime would be.
Temperatures I am currently getting: Idle: 29 - 31 C Load: 47 - 48 C (using prime 95) Room Temperature: 25 C. (warm, it's the middle east)
Thank you for any advice.
