Hi, i'm thinking about overclocking my athlon x4 to around 3.6-4GHz, I just wanted to see what other people were hitting with this particular chip so i know what to expect. The rest of my system specs are:

8GB's Kingston HyperX Blu 1600MHz
Sapphire Radeon 7770 GHz Edition
Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3
FSP Bluestorm ii 500W
AMD Athlon ii X4 640
Arctic Freezer Pro 7 Rev.2

So, any idea's? :)

It's gonna be kind of tough... But assuming you have a solid cooling system you can expect 3.8GHz (255mhz x 15x multiplier) at about 1.55V (although going that high can be scary... it will probably decrease the lifespan of the CPU
