Default Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Black Edition Highest Overclock

Does anyone have any idea what the highest oc for the Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Black Edition is? On tomshardware they used stock cooling and just adjusted the multiplier to 3.4ghz. I was wondering if it's possible with aftermarket cooling, AS5, and adjusting the multiplier + fsb, would it be possible to shoot for something more?

I dunno, right now I'm at 3.1ghz with my 3600+, but would like a better processor, should I expect big changes from my 3600+ 3.1 to a 5000+ 3.4?

.3 ghz isn't that big of a difference. you might want to hold off and get an am2+ or x38 setup for your next upgrade.

also what are your temps for the cpu you have? cause im getting a 4000+ next week and wanna know what i can expect it to get to.

something like a 4000+ won't go above 2.9ghz on air...

I lapped my fan heatsink and my cpu. I have a tj-09 case with 2 120 mm fans blowing directly at it.
At stock I sit at 20 C -25C max idle. Max I hit maybe 35.
When I oc my max is 50C
I have good cooling though.

Oh by the way, I had to use an aftermarket reader to tell me the exact temperature, my bios would report the cpu to like 80C, but it feels cold.
