    Overclocking on athlon X2 4200+2.2 ghz

    Hi friends,

    I am having a Socket 939 Asus A8NE and Athlon X2 4200 + at 2.2ghz. I wanted to know if I could overclock a little up and if so how much roughly?

    Can anyone help me out with this.

    Here is my Configuration , on one side I have my current configuration as

    Asus A8NE, socket 939
    Athlon 3500 + 2.2 ghz
    2ram DDR 2 333MHz
    Geforce 9600 gt

    It's begins to weaken, but I have played far cry 2 on it.I got the solution to put an Athlon X2 4200 + and the over clock or simply to put this configuration.

    ASUS P5QC
    Athlon X2 4200 + 2.8GHZ
    2gb Ballistix PC8500 DDR 2 RAM
    1 Maxtor storage
    9600GT 512mb
    ANTEC true power 480W

    is the first solution may be the time to be studying, that why I ask you what you can do ?

    Well to be clear you win a few in performance from an X2 4200 +, but the problem is that at first glance your motherboard and your memory are not made for over clocking.

    In most cases over clocking CPU not change much in games because it is often the graphics card that limits the first.

    In your case the act of placing a 3500 + single core to a X2 4200 + 2.8 GHZ certainly a difference, especially on recent games, but apart from if you can not really do otherwise I will not recommend this option .

    Even if you can not pay you right now I advise you to put aside money for a new machine which will come in recent.
